2020 Body of Knowledge (BOK) Updates

The medical practice management profession has always and will continue to evolve and change. To ensure that board certification continues to be the most effective, and contemporary assessment of skills and abilities, the ACMPE exam blueprint has been updated. These changes will be reflected starting with the December 2020 exam window. 

Psychometric standards dictate that the content standards for the exam be determined by conducting a Job Analysis Survey. This study uses healthcare administrator professionals to identify and prioritize the critical tasks of a profession. This data was then used to calculate the relative proportions of each subject area, or domain, and reviewed and compiled by subject matter experts.  

While the exam content will contain common information, the organization of the information and the level of emphasis will change, as well as added areas of study and more concise tasks.
