Edwin Castaneda, M.D., F.A.C.P., a Berlin internist and Chief of Medical
Staff at Atlantic General Hospital, recently achieved his internal medicine
recertification by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
As a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine, a physician
completes recertification through the Board’s Maintenance of Certification
program every ten years to ensure life-long learning and to provide his
or her patients with the best quality care. The process is rigorous and
can take several years to complete. Castaneda first received his diplomate
status in 1997.
Castaneda is currently the medical director of the Diabetes Outpatient
Education Program at Atlantic General Hospital and has served as the chairman
of the Credentials and Medical Staff Quality Committees.
He is a clinical instructor for fourth-year medical students at the University
of Maryland Medical School and for nurse practitioner students at Salisbury
University. Castaneda is also a fellow of the American College of Physicians
and a member of the American College of Physician Executives.
A graduate of St. Louis University Medical School, Castaneda completed
residency training at Hackensack Medical Center in Hackensack, N.J. He
has been practicing internal medicine for thirteen years at Atlantic General
Hospital. Previously, he was a hospitalist at Shore Health System’s
Easton Memorial Hospital.
Castaneda lives in Ocean Pines with his wife, Jessie, and two children,
Christian and Gabrielle.
