Program enhancement highlights:

Education and experience eligibility: Starting in January 2019, to participate in the Fellowship program candidates must either have a Bachelor’s degree AND seven years of healthcare experience, OR a Master’s degree AND five years of healthcare experience. At least two years of this experience must be in a leadership role.

Business plan proposals: Fellows are thought leaders within healthcare organizations and should be able to demonstrate the ability to execute on dynamic solutions to business problems. In that spirit, we will be phasing out the professional paper submission and moving towards the submission of innovative business plan proposals. We believe this move will better support our Fellows to concretely demonstrate practical skills to current and potential employers. 

Continuing education requirements: To ensure the highest quality of education for our Fellows, we will require that the 50 hours of continuing education now include 30 hours from MGMA state and national learning, including at least 12 face-to-face hours. The remaining 20 hours may come from either MGMA or qualified outside sources. This will also apply to the 50 hours of continuing education required every three years to remain certified.

Volunteer hours: To showcase a commitment to their industry, Fellows will be required to complete six volunteer hours beginning in January 2019. These hours must include three hours from healthcare related opportunities and three hours from community service 

Fellowship deadline: Candidates who enter the Fellowship program in 2019 will now have two years from their application date to complete their Fellowship requirements.

OUR GOAL

To develop and equip our members to create dynamic, successful medical group practices.

OUR VISION

To be the recognized leader in defining and supporting the profession of medical practice management in Tennessee.
