The CMM Credential provides assurance to physicians, medical boards, and the public that the PAHCOM CMM has been tested under strict requirements using psychometrically determined processes and found to be competent in the administrative management of health care organizations. The examination created and administered by PAHCOM, for the healthcare administration profession, is the Certified Medical Manager (CMM) Credential. The CMM Credential validates knowledge of the Nine Domains of Medical Practice Administration and recognizes the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to manage physician practices and ambulatory service centers in increasingly complex environments. CMMs work as critical links between providers, patients, staff and payers. The CMM is the only nationally accredited professional certification specific to practice management with focus on managers of solo provider and small group physician practices.
