Canadian Certified Physician Executive

(CMA Joule) – The Canadian Certified Physician Executive (CCPE) credential recognizes and advances physician leadership and excellence through a national, peer-generated, standards-based assessment process.

Those who earn the credential have demonstrated that they have the leadership capabilities, knowledge and skills needed to succeed ― and to direct, influence and orchestrate change in Canada’s complex health care system.

Although certification is offered exclusively by the Canadian Society of Physician Leaders (CSPL), one way to qualify for the CCPE credential is by completing CMA Joule’s Physician Leadership Institute (PLI) courses.

You may qualify if you have:

  • taken at least 10 days of PLI leadership development courses within the past 10 years;
  • a minimum five years of senior or executive health care leadership experience, with a focus on the LEADS domains of Developing Coalitions and Systems Transformation; and
  • a minimum 20 additional continuing professional development credits from other accredited leadership activities and/or programs. These could include additional PLI physician leadership courses and/or accredited conferences.
