The Credentialing Schools

Since 2008, Edge-U-Cate has been offering two distinct 4.5 day intensive Credentialing School courses: Hospital Basics and Beyond the Basics,

See our Calendar for dates, and our brochure for more information.

Healthcare experts agree that an organization’s credentialing and privileging system is the foundation of quality patient care. While credentialing and privileging decisions are the ultimate responsibility of the Medical Staff and Governing Body, each group relies heavily on medical services management and credentialing personnel to manage an effective credentialing and privileging process, and serve as an internal resource for the medical staff and administration when credentialing issues are identified.




Comprehensive practitioner credentialing is more important today than ever before. It’s estimated that at least 5% of all physicians in this country have significant quality, behavioral, or substance abuse issues that adversely affect patient care; and negligent credentialing claims against healthcare organizations are on the rise. The demand today for qualified, appropriately trained credentialing and medical services management professionals far exceeds the current supply. Edge-U-Cate created The Credentialing School to provide the training necessary to meet today’s demands for qualified personnel in this critical role.
