Kim Gilmore, vice president of Audigy Group’s Strategic Business Unit, has earned board certification in medical practice management through the American College of Medical Practice Executives, Audigy announced.
Certification is awarded based on successful completion of a three-hour multiple-choice exam and a 90-minute, scenario-based essay exam. The core competencies measured across six managerial domains—operations, finance, human resources, risk and compliance, patient-centered care, and organizational governance—are foundational to becoming a successful medical practice executive.
“Continuing education is important to me as a leader and a professional,” said Gilmore. “Achieving advanced knowledge in these six key areas aligns perfectly with the almost 20 years of experience I have in medical group management. More importantly, it aligns perfectly with the needs of Audigy’s membership. I look forward to using these resources in our internal teams’ continuing education.”
The college was established in 1956 to develop national competency standards for medical practice management as well as implement those standards through comprehensive credentialing. Credentialing is maintained through a regular, consistent accrual of continuing education courses at the local, state, and national levels.
“I’m excited to congratulate Kim on her achievement,” said Misty Stern, Audigy’s executive vice president of operations and marketing. “Her commitment to continuing education, elevating the field of medical practice management, and meeting our membership’s needs is truly inspirational. She is a credit to our profession.”
