GILLETTE, WY –
Deanna Lassegard, MD, and
Amanda Opfer, DO,
Emergency Medicine specialists at Campbell County Memorial Hospital (CCMH), recently earned board certification from the American Board of Emergency
Medicine (ABEM). Dr. Lassegard and Dr. Opfer have both been employed with Campbell County
Health since 2018.
Board certification is a voluntary program in which specialists seek to
improve their performance and demonstrate a commitment to their profession.
The American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) is one of 24 medical specialty
certification boards recognized by the
American Board of Medical Specialties. ABEM certifies emergency physicians who meet its educational, professional
standing, and examination standards.
There are three steps to achieve Emergency Medicine certification:
- applying and credentialing
- taking and passing a qualifying examination, and
- taking and passing an oral certification examination.
Physicians who successfully complete each of these steps are certified
as diplomates of the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM). Certification
is for a period of 10 years. To maintain certification beyond the expiration
date of the certificate, diplomates must participate in the Emergency
Medicine Continuous Certification program (EMCC).
Drs. Lassegard and Opfer join Emergency Department physicians Tyler Dickey,
Scott Diering, John Gall, Jonathan Hayden, Stephen Houmes, Mark Kellam,
Jon Kerr, Stanley Lawson, and Michael Stolpe who are all board certified
in Emergency Medicine. Learn more about the CCMH Emergency Department
