This advanced certification is designed for practice managers wanting to validate their expertise, and for those with strong coding/billing experience who are ready to advance their careers in practice management.

Whether it’s revenue cycle management, compliance regulations, human resources, health information technology, or marketing, the CPPM training and credential will provide valuable knowledge for those hungry to push their career to the next level.”
Practice management professionals successful at passing the 200-question CPPM exam will have demonstrated proficiency in the following:
