WRMC Physicians Earn Board Certifications

Wassim Radwan, M.D. and Miguel Villagra, M.D., Hospitalists at White River Medical Center (WRMC), have both successfully earned Board Certifications in Internal Medicine from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

The Hospitalist team under the Hospital Medicine Program at WRMC consists of Internal Medicine Physicians who provide care and/or consultation to patients hospitalized at WRMC. They actively oversee diagnostic tests, treatments, and other aspects of patient care and work closely with patients, family members, primary care physicians, other specialists and other departments of the hospital.

"We are proud of Dr. Radwan and Dr. Villagra for becoming board certified," said Tom Cummins, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at WRMC. "It really demonstrates their commitment to excellence in their field."

Dr. Radwan received his Medical Degree and completed his Residency at the University of Mansoura in Egypt. Radwan also completed an Internal Medicine Residency at Texas Tech University Health Science Center in El Paso, TX.

Dr. Villagra received his Medical Degree from the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua in Managua, Nicaragua. He completed Internal Medicine Residency Training at Dr. Alejandro Davila Bolaños Military Hospital in Nicaragua, and at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in El Paso, Texas.

Both joined the WRMC Medical Staff in 2012.

ABIM works to enhance the quality of healthcare by certifying internists and subspecialists who demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for excellent patient care.

Board Certification demonstrates that the physicians have met the highest standards of internal medicine and its subspecialties. Board Certification is voluntary and includes an exam that tests a physician's ability to diagnose and treat patients with a broad range of conditions.
