ACMPE Certification

The American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE) Board Certification assesses professionals who meet established standard knowledge, skills, or competencies in regards to the Body of Knowledge for medical practice executives.

For more than 60 years, ACMPE has been elevating exceptional medical practice managers to the role of Certified Medical Practice Executives (CMPE) by demonstrating both breadth and depth of professional knowledge, and a commitment to their profession, physicians, and patients.

The ACMPE Board Certification awards the CMPE designation to recognize the achievement, validating the recipient’s demonstrated competencies, independent of a specific learning event, course, or certificate.

Some of the key benefits of Board Certification include:

  • Validation of knowledge

  • Increased marketability

  • Enhanced academic performance
  • Improved reputation
  • Enhanced credibility
