Medical Credentialing

Medical Staff Credentialing and Privileging Program

The University of Florida Provider Credentialing and Privileging Program is an immersive and interactive six-module educational program designed to serve as a broad competency based educational experience.

The program is designed for professionals with responsibility and accountability for review and coordination of the credentialing and/or re-credentialing and privileging process for clinical providers (i.e. psychologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physicians, chiropractors).

The program is asynchronous, allowing participants to start and stop the program based around the individual’s schedule. Educational modules not only provide a broad oversight of government and commercial insurer regulations and requirements, but also provide participants with a ‘tool-kit’ of up-to-date resources for use beyond the program.

Program participants must successfully complete the course with a 70%ile passing score or higher to receive the Professional Certificate.
