What is CMPE board certification?

Board certification through the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE) is designed to verify and validate expertise and experience in medical practice management in the six domains of the Body of Knowledge (BOK).

To begin the certification process, you are required to have two years of ambulatory or other healthcare management experience that includes at least six months as a direct supervisor of people in a healthcare delivery system, as well as significant functional responsibility in at least one of the six domains in the BOK.

Why choose certification through ACMPE?

The Certified Medical Practice Executive (CMPE) credential, administered through the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE), has set the industry standard for more than 57 years as the most significant benchmark of ability and experience.

Board certification credentials are designed, developed and evaluated by your peers to ensure that the standards are relevant, rigorous and specifically tied to competencies outlined in the BOK that are necessary to drive medical practice success.

CMPE professionals enjoy:

  • Professional respect from physicians, peers and colleagues
