The American Association for Physician Leadership® announced Dr. Joel Hassien earned the prestigious Certified Physician Executive (CPE) certification. This designation indicates a physician has achieved superior levels of professional excellence and management education while also demonstrating effective health care industry knowledge and leadership skills. The certification is the industry benchmark for CEOs and executive recruiters seeking the most accomplished and influential physician leaders. It speaks to the physician’s commitment to improving patient care.
“The contemporary challenges facing healthcare today — such as variable clinical quality, persistent, high institutional costs in the face of clarifying value, and less than optimal patient experiences — require physician leaders who can interlace clinical knowledge, seasoned leadership skills and superior management acumen,” said Dr. Peter Angood, president and CEO of the American Association for Physician Leadership®.
The American Association for Physician Leadership® is the nation’s largest organization solely focused on leadership education and management training for physicians. Chartered by the American Association for Physician Leadership® to establish and maintain the high standards required for physician executive certification, the Certifying Commission in Medical Management has a 20-year history as a national, not-for-profit corporation certifying physicians specializing in medical management. The Certifying Commission in Medical Management currently lists more than 3300 Certified Physician Executives.
