Canadian Certified Physician Executives — 2016

This year, 9 physicians have earned the Canadian Certified Physician Executive (CCPE) credential. These physicians from across Canada have fulfilled the eligibility criteria and demonstrated through a peer review and assessment process that they have the knowledge, skills and leadership accomplishments not only worthy of national recognition but also needed to influence and bring about change in today's complex health care environment.

Joule and the Canadian Society of Physician Leaders are delighted to stand behind this credential and are especially pleased with the high calibre of physicians in this year's cohort and with the level of interest that continues to grow.

Congratulations to this diverse and talented group of physicians.
