Physicians can become Certified Through CMET: Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants can be Certified through APWH
Council for Medical Education and Testing (CMET) is the oldest physician specific organization in the country created to certify MDs, DOs, and DPMs.
Physicians and advanced practitioners both oversee, diagnose and manage for patient care.
In recognition of that, the Academy for Physicians in Wound Healing (APWH) has created a certification process for nurse practitioners and physician assistants in wound healing. Both examinations are offered online, 24/7 and can be taken in the convenience of your home and office.
Physicians who are certified by the COUNCIL FOR MEDICAL EDUCATION AND TESTING (CMET) join APWH as Fellows-Certified in wound care (FAPWHc). The CMET exam is offered online and may be taken in the convenience of your home, office or similar setting. In addition, it is offered at at the APWH Annual Conference.
The Council for Medical Education and Testing (CMET) provides the only physician specific certification in wound healing fully produced and administered by a physician specific organization and available to all prescribing physicians (MD, DPM, DO). The exam is Beta-tested, peer reviewed and has demonstrated proven viability and withstood the test of time. By numbers alone it is de facto the largest and most widely accepted certification of its kind in the United States today. CMET is the physician’s choice for wound healing certification.
CMET certification advances wound healing to a new level. It brings us one step closer to the goal of specialty recognition. The next challenge will be the initiation of residencies and fellowships which are commensurate with the evolution of knowledge and practice. This examination is available to all prescribing physicians (MD, DO, DPM).
Newly Practicing Podiatrists can sit for CMET Physician Certification in Wound Healing immediately after completing a 3 year residency. This is due to the national standards requirements built into the CPME approved 3 year residency and the competency examinations related to the successful completion of this training program. This is also available to medical residents and fellowships who have had wound healing incorporated into their training.
Easy preparation is offered online through our affiliate organization, the Academy of Physicians in Wound Healing (APWH). The online Review and Refresher Course is user-friendly, with the ability to stop and resume lectures at any point and is available 24/7.
