TESTIMONIALS

The Medical Compliance Training curriculum has increased my professional development by increasing my ability to analyze areas of possible risk. My logic skills were greatly enhanced after taking the MCS-P course, and I don't perceive daily challenges in the same limited ways as I did before this training. The entire program broadens the concept of one's skills from appealing to both management and the ‘nuts and bolts’ daily operations. The CD is an invaluable tool that I reference daily.

The Medical Compliance Training curriculum is comprehensively researched, timely and effectively presented. I would recommend this program to anyone wanting to gain a superior knowledge of medical compliance. MCS-Ps are the leaders in the nation in 'drilling-down' compliance challenges and implementing resolutions. Investing in this program has increased my professional fulfillment, both in my ability to take on new challenges and my understanding things in the ‘big-picture’ concept. Additionally, it has increased my financial security substantially.

TESTIMONIALS

This course is the only medical seminar or certification class I have attended which consistently exceeded expectations. Tackling the immense volume of laws and legislation that impact every facet of medical compliance, this detailed, well-organized presentation is designed in such a way that every healthcare entity will benefit. It is impossible to leave this class without the tools to implement a comprehensive compliance plan and a map to navigate the most complex legislature. I will never look at healthcare the same way.

FAQS

MCS-P certification demonstrates a knowledge base appropriate for the new career paths on the horizon and the opportunities currently available requiring a regulatory compliance skill-set.

If there is any single body of knowledge needed for professional advancement, it’s a basic knowledge of the laws, rules and regulations which affect the daily operation of a medical practice. Without this basic knowledge it can be impossible to make critical decisions or in some cases, even realize that a decision needs to be made.
