A Pathway Forward
A CPEP Educational Intervention is often the logical extension of a competence assessment. If the assessment identifies areas where performance improvement is suggested, the intervention can address those areas – in most cases in the participant’s own community.
Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan
That old adage accurately describes CPEP’s Educational Intervention process. Each Intervention is unique, but generally consists of the following:
- A detailed, step by step plan to address opportunities for improvement. Each plan is based on the results of the competence assessment.
- Components of the plan may include:
- Self-directed study of evidence-based literature
- Structured, accredited CME activities
- Supervised Point of Care educational experience
- Chart reviews with preceptor
Closing the Loop
CPEP’s Educational Interventions are designed to fulfill the requirements of licensing boards or credentialing committees. In some cases, professionals who self-refer for a clinical competence assessment may also engage in an intervention to proactively improve their clinical performance.
CPEP cannot engage in an educational intervention in the absence of a clinical competence assessment conducted by CPEP staff. The plan is separate from the assessment report, and its development is subject to a separate set of fees.

What is the cost of an educational intervention?
The fee for developing an educational plan ranges from $1,900 to $2,700 depending upon the participant’s specialty, and is not included in the clinical competence assessment fee. For RCP participants, the development of the reentry plan is included in the reentry fee.
The fee for monitoring an education intervention ranges from $750 per month to $950 per month depending upon the participant’s specialty. The fee is the same for reentry and clinical competence participants.
How long does the Intervention last?
The length of an intervention may vary. Plans that address more significant educational needs generally take longer. At the same time, participants who perform well during the intervention may require less time. Most Educational Interventions range from 12 to 15 months.
Who is eligible for an Educational Intervention?
CPEP’s Educational Interventions are available to physicians, podiatrists, physician assistants and advanced practice nurses.
Note that these Interventions are only available to clinicians who have completed the CPEP Clinical Competence Assessment process.
What is a Point of Care Experience?
This is a supervised educational experience working directly with a preceptor in a clinical setting. Point of Care (PoC) education occurs during the patient encounter and includes appropriately graduated levels of independence through periods of observation and supervision. The preceptor provides focused coaching and supervision.
What is a Preceptor?
A preceptor is a clinician with the same training, specialty, and scope of practice who serves as a mentor and educator during the educational intervention period.
