    CPE Testimonials

    “We all have letters after our names — MD, MMM, MBA, others. CPE might seem like another set of letters, but I learned how to identify my leadership strengths, and [the exercises] stick with me today.”

    Barbara Loeb, MD, MBA, CPE, FACP, FACPE
    CMO, Chicago Health System, Illinois

    “I felt on top with the MMM I had gotten previously, but the CPE gave me a little bit more credibility in trying to move up the ladder. …
    It’s a validation that you’ve put in the time and you’ve acquired those [necessary] skills.”

    Bob Coates, MD, MMM, CPE
    VPMA, Hunterdon Medical Center, New Jersey

    “A lot of what a CPE knows is how to talk ‘administration.’ Most health systems and hospitals have no clue how to talk ‘doctor.’
    ...The CPE credential tells everyone you are prepared.”

    Michael Torres, MD, MBA, CPE, CHCQM
    VP and CMO, Florida Hospital Tampa, Florida

    “I’ve been a hiring manager for physician executives, and CPE is a credential that I really value. Because it shows me that not only is someone interested in being a physician leader, but they’ve actually taken action.”

    Patricia Buss, MD, MBA, CPE
    Physician Executive, Evolent Health, Washington, D.C.

    “It gives me credibility in my role …not only to my colleagues but with the administrative leadership in any field that I work across.”

    Anil Thogarucheeti, MD, MBA, CPE, FACP
    Department Chair, Gould Medical Group, California

    “It’s our job, I think, to provide the best care to all patients — not the ones we touch but also the patients we will not touch one-on-one but will reach through our credentials, such as CPE.”

    Amjad Riar, MD, CPE
    Internist, Inova Loudoun Hospital, Virginia

    “The credentialing opened an avenue of management and taking care of hospital administration, which we had very little training during our standard medical training. … [It] helped me become a better physician.”

    Koroush Khalighi, MD, CPE
    Chief of Medical Staff, Easton Hospital, Pennsylvania

    “You won’t know the value of it until 20 years from now. It’s like that seventh-grade English teacher. It might not be a pleasure to go through it, but it really is worth the time, effort and investment.”

    Mark Browne, MD, MMM, CPE, FAAP, FACPE
    Senior VP and CMO, Covenant Health, Tennessee
