    Now is the time to continue your journey and earn your Fellowship in the American College of Medical Practice Executives.


    Education and experience eligibility: Starting in January 2019, to participate in the Fellowship program candidates must either have a Bachelor’s degree AND seven years of healthcare experience, OR a Master’s degree AND five years of healthcare experience. At least two years of this experience must be in a leadership role.


    Volunteer hours: From January 2019 onwards, Fellows will be required to complete six volunteer hours to showcase commitment to our industry. These hours must include three hours from healthcare related opportunities and three hours from community service.


    Business plan proposals: Our Fellows should be seen as the thought leaders within healthcare organizations, which means demonstrating the ability to execute on dynamic solutions to business problems. In that spirit, we will be phasing out the professional paper submission and moving towards the submission of innovative business plan proposals.  We believe this move will better support our Fellows to concretely demonstrate practical skills to current and potential employers.


    Fellowship deadline: Candidates who enter the Fellowship program in 2019 will have two years from their application date to complete their Fellowship requirements.


    Please join us for a webinar next week on Thursday, April 12 at 4:30pm where we'll address the upcoming changes to the Fellowship program and answer any additional questions you may have.  Send me your interest by sending an email to acmperep@omgma.com. I'll send you the Go To Meeting information for the webinar. 


    In the mean time, feel free to reach out with questions or let me know if there are materials that would assist you.


    Sincerely,  

    Deb Bartel FACMPE

    For those of you seeking CMPE certification this year, we have a webinar Wednesday April 11 at 3:30pm to give an overview of the changes and identify ways we can help you reach your goal of Certification in 2018! 

    If you currently hold CMPE certification and are ready to move forward to Fellowship, we have a webinar Thursday April 12 at 4:30pm for an overview of the changes and how you might take advantage of the 2019 program in 2018. 

    In addition to these brief webinars, we have some great sessions available at the Spring OR/WA Joint Conference coming up in Portland next month.  The Early Bird registration discount has been extended so if you missed the original deadline last week, it isn’t too late!   The CMPE and FACMPE sessions at the conference will go much more in depth but since time is flying and both programs change so significantly at the end of the year, we wanted to give you an extra boost to get you started. 

    In order to participate in either webinar, send an email to us at:  acmperep@omgma.com  and we’ll respond with the webinar information and links.

    Sincerely,
