Madera Community Hospital is pleased to announce Bakht Roshan, MD has successfully
completed Board Certification in Infectious Disease from the American
Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
Board certification from ABIM is the highest standard in internal medicine
and its subspecialties. ABIM Certified physicians have demonstrated, to
their peers and to the public, they have the clinical judgment, skills
and attitudes essential for providing excellent patient care.
Dr. Roshan joined Madera Medical Staff in August of 2017, after successful
completion of a Fellowship in Infectious Disease from the University of
California San Francisco, UCSF- Fresno, and nearly 16 years of clinical
research. “Madera Community Hospital is on a constant quest to improve
patient safety and clinical outcomes,” said Karen Paolinelli, Chief
Executive Officer, Madera Community Hospital. “Recruiting an infectious
disease specialist supports our patient safety initiatives by leading
internal efforts to reduce hospital acquired infections and educating
and collaborating with community based long term care facilities for appropriate
antibiotic use,” added Paolinelli. “It is unusual, for a community
of our size, to have an infectious disease specialist. Yet the medical
specialty is essential in keeping patient safety at the forefront of our
care,” concluded Paolinelli.
Board certification is voluntary and includes a rigorous exam, testing
a physician’s ability to diagnose and treat patients with a broad
range of conditions. To maintain certification, physicians participate
in activities assessing knowledge of the latest scientific developments
and changes in practice and in specialty areas.
“I, along with our colleagues, congratulate Dr. Roshan on his Board
Certification,” said Mohammad Ashraf, MD, Cardiology, Madera Community
Hospital Chief of Staff. “Dr. Roshan is a skilled practitioner and
his clinical expertise is a valued resource,” added Dr. Ashraf.
In addition to consulting and treating inpatients at Madera Community Hospital,
Dr. Roshan has developed a successful outpatient practice with Affiliated
Physician Practice, on Almond Avenue in Madera, and treats patients at
Family Health Services Medical Specialty Clinic.
