ACADEMIC CREDENTIALING PROGRAM

The Academic Credentialing Program (ACP) is modeled after historically successful programs in the accounting, legal, and medical professions wherein specific educational curricula are mastered and the student is then able to add specific professional recognition to the academic recognition received from the educational institution.

The Academic Credentialing Program (ACP) is modeled after historically successful programs in the accounting, legal, and medical professions wherein specific educational curricula are mastered and the student is then able to add specific professional recognition to the academic recognition received from the educational institution. The recognition is attained by successfully passing an examination created and administered by the specific profession. The examination created and administered by PAHCOM, for the healthcare administration profession, is the Certified Medical Manager (CMM) credential.  The CMM Exam validates knowledge of the Nine Domains of Medical Practice Administration.  Participants who pass the CMM Exam are awarded the temporary credential of Certified Medical Manager – Academic (CMM-A). The credential is converted to the full CMM credential upon attainment of two years of healthcare environment experience.
