Certified Physician Executive

Be at the forefront of influential change

Since 1997, the Certified Physician Executive (CPE) credential has helped physicians maximize their leadership potential to influence health care.

The CPE designation tells a compelling story of your business acumen to colleagues, current and future employers, recruiters and others. It endorses your ability to lead large groups, manage budgets, address HR challenges, and apply strategic business insights.

The CPE demonstrates your commitment to quality, communication and excellence in health care. You’ll feel the personal satisfaction of achieving an exclusive pinnacle of professional distinction. Endorsed by the American Association for Physician Leadership®, the CPE designation is awarded by the Certifying Commission in Medical Management and is a benchmark for employers seeking the most accomplished and influential physician leaders.

The CPE curriculum provides you with the knowledge, skills and core competencies in key areas to transition into a wide array of leadership roles. The final CPE Capstone event is the culmination of that education designed to refine your skills to be an even more effective leader.
