Changes to the CMPE Board Certification Exam

December 2014

The medical practice management profession has always and will continue to evolve and change. To ensure that board certification continues to be the most effective, and contemporary assessment of skills and abilities, we have made updates to the Body of Knowledge that will be applied to the December 2014 multiple choice exams.

The Body of Knowledge’s eight domains have been reconfigured into six. As quality management and information management skills are now integral to all of the other domains (e.g., financial management and risk management), they will be integrated rather than separately identified. A new task – coordination of patient care – has been added to the patient care domain.
