ACMPE Exam Registration

Board certification through the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE)* is based on a body of knowledge specific to medical practice management and is the only board certification in medical practice management. Individuals with two or more years of experience in healthcare management, including at least six months in a supervisory role, are qualified to apply. You must be accepted into the program prior to registering for the exams.

Board certification validates your knowledge and skills through the completion of two exam requirements (these exams can be completed in the order that works for you):

Multiple choice exam: The multiple choice exam assesses your on-the-job knowledge of a broad scope of group practice management principles and practices as described in the Body of Knowledge for Medical Practice Management.

Essay exam: The essay exam assesses your in-depth knowledge of medical practice management principles and issues, problem-solving and decision-making skills and your ability to communicate in formal writing. NOTE: The June registration period is your last chance to take the essay exam. It will be replaced by the new scenario-based exam in September 2017 (the multiple choice exam will remain in place.) You can select to take a pilot version of the scenario-based exam during the June registration period in place of the essay exam at a reduced price.

New option! Pilot the new scenario-based exam in place of the essay exam for $99—a savings of $66. The scenario-based exam will be introduced in June 2017 and fully replace the essay exam in September 2017. The exam will assess your ability to problem solve, your in-depth knowledge of medical practice management principles, issues and decision-making skills.

*ACMPE is the certification and fellowship authority of MGMA and has been certifying medical practice executives since 1956.
