About the credential
The Canadian Certified Physician Executive (CCPE) credential recognizes and advances physician leadership and excellence through a national, peer-generated, standards-based assessment process. It is based on the tenets of the LEADS in a Caring Environment Capabilities Framework.
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. There are two ways to achieve the credential: the Academic route and the Practice eligibility route.
Originally a joint venture between the Canadian Society of Physician Leaders (CSPL) and the Canadian Medical Association, and later with Joule Inc., the credential now belongs solely to CSPL.
Pilot program: CSPL plans changes to the Academic Route to recognize an expanded range of formal academic physician leadership development. CSPL has already added a number of programs to this year’s eligible list and will continue to add programs once they’ve been assessed against comparable metrics.
