Virtual CPMSM® Certification Preparation Course – February/March 2024

Includes Multiple Live Events. The next is on 03/05/2024 at 2:00 PM (EST)

The NAMSS Medical Services Management (CPMSM®) Certification Preparation Workshop is a two-week interactive program designed to help you assess your knowledge of the CPMSM exam content areas and identify areas in which additional study may be necessary before you take the exam. This comprehensive workshop provides a high-level overview of the exam topics including, but not limited to accreditation and regulatory compliance; management of the credentialing processes; privileging; enrollment; medical staff services administration; risk management; information management; and medical staff services operations, reviewed from the perspective of a variety of health care settings including hospitals, managed care organizations, ambulatory care settings and CVOs. 

Participants will work through a series of online modules supplemented with four live sessions facilitated by experienced NAMSS instructors. A key focus of the course is your development of a personalized study plan for post-workshop study and preparation to take the examination. The course includes access to supplementary resources to help you prepare for the exam.
