Why choose LifeGuard

A nationally recognized program, LifeGuard has been a vanguard for addressing clinical competency assessment needs for physicians and other health care professionals. Conceptualized by doctors for doctors; LifeGuard provides comprehensive assessment services and recommendations for remediation tailored to the individual needs of physicians and other eligible health care professionals. Through carefully customized evaluation programs we aim to facilitate higher performing physicians, promote patient safety, and enhance the quality of medical care provided to ensure complete clinical competence. LifeGuard is not associated with any health system and as a core tenant utilizes a team of independent evaluators who have an explicit goal to fairly evaluate the physician.
