Dr. Rick­man has been prac­tic­ing at Com­mu­nity Med­i­cal As­so­ci­ates and on the med­i­cal staff of North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal since Septem­ber 1998. He is cer­ti­fied in in­ter­nal medicine by the Amer­i­can Board of In­ter­nal Medicine.

The Amer­i­can Col­lege of Physi­cians is the sec­ond-largest physi­cian group in the United States. Mem­ber­ship in­cludes more that 129,000 in­ternists, re­lated sub­spe­cial­ists, and med­i­cal stu­dents. In­ternists are spe­cial­ists in the pre­ven­tion, de­tec­tion, and treat­ment of ill­nesses in adults.

Fel­lows are elected upon the rec­om­men­da­tion of their peers and the re­view of ACP’s Cre­den­tials Sub­com­mit­tee. They of­ten use “FACP” Fel­low of the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Physi­cians af­ter their names in recog­ni­tion of this honor.
