Body of Knowledge

Developed and published by the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE), the standard-setting certification body of the MGMA, this body of knowledge is the most valid and reliable resource available in the field.  It is based on an extensive study of group practice management professionals that identified the current knowledge and skills necessary for competent performance.

Below is an overview of the domains and tasks that represent the core Body of Knowledge. Woven throughout these domains are four general competencies: Professionalism, leadership, communication skills and critical thinking.

The MEMGMA uses these domains as a guide when providing educational sessions to our members. To learn more about the Body of Knowledge visit
