We are responsible for managing the credentialing, re-credentialing, privileging, Proctoring/Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE), Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation (OPPE), and support of physician leaders with their organizational structure including, but not limited to, meeting management.
