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 multiple times throughout the year and in multiple locations throughout the United States and this year will be offered overseas.


As with the APWH, CMET is the only other physician-specific organization in wound care and serves as a certifying agency.

“The CMET examination changes the dynamics of this field and advances wound care 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).”

— Susan Hilsman, MD, FAPWHc, CMET President and Examination Chair
