  • Board eligible classification: Candidates will be allowed to enter the program even if they may not yet meet the education and experience requirements. Candidates must show an understanding and knowledge of the principles of medical practice administration by passing the multiple-choice exam. Certification will be achieved by passing the scenario-based exam, complete the required 50 continuing education credit hours and attain a Bachelor’s degree or 120 college credits and two years of healthcare experience.
  • Continuing education credits will be required that the 50 hours of continuing education include 30 hours from MGMA STATE AND NATIONAL LEARNING, INCLUDING AT LEAST 12 FACE-TO-FACE HOURS. The remaining hours may come from either MGMA or qualified outside sources.
  • If you enter the board certification program in 2019, you will have to complete your exam and 50 hours of CE within three years of application date.

At least two years must be in a leadership role. There will be a requirement of six volunteer hours (3 hours from healthcare, 3 hours of community service).
