​Canadian Certified Physician Executive Credential

The first Canadian certification program to recognize physicians for their exemplary leadership performance

Originally developed by the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and the Canadian Society of Physician Leaders (CSPL), and launched in 2010, the CCPE credential is designed to recognize and advance physician leadership and excellence through a national, peer-generated, standards-based assessment process. The credential is currently a joint venture of Joule, a CMA company, and CSPL. The CCPE program Secretariat resides with CSPL.

Those who earn the CCPE 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.
