Dr. Judith Smith named Certified Physician Executive

Dr. Judith Smith, an orthopedic surgeon with Ferrell-Duncan Clinic, was recently designated a Certified Physician Executive by the Certifying Commission in Medical Management.

Dr. Smith was given Certified Physician Executive designation for her superior levels of management education, leadership skills and stature as a physician. Only 700 physicians nationwide have been named Certified Physician Executive.

The Certifying Commission in Medical Management is the national certifying body for physicians specializing in medical management. This nonprofit organization is chartered by the American College of Physician Executives and is designed to establish and maintain the high standards required for physician executives.

Dr. Smith joined Ferrell-Duncan Clinic in 2004 where she specializes in foot and ankle surgical reconstruction. Prior coming to Springfield, she served three years as the executive director of an ambulatory surgery center in New York City. Dr. Smith attended medical school at Columbia University and completed residencies at Yale-New Haven Hospital, New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center and the Hospital for Special Surgery. In addition, she completed a fellowship in foot and ankle reconstruction at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Smith also holds an MBA from Emory University and is board certified in orthopedic surgery.
