Reentry Into Clinical Practice Program
Clinical Skills Evaluation
- One day comprehensive evaluation tailored to the physician's specialty
- Structured clinical interviews with board certified physicians/consultants
- Program directors trained in evaluation methodology, education, and physician/patient communications
Reentry Educational Plan
- Supervised clinical experience to update technical skills and medical knowledge
- Interaction and counsel of a skilled preceptor identified by the physician and approved by CPEP
- Generally, a community-based preceptor and practice setting are identified by the participant. CPEP conducts an approval and training process to ensure that the preceptor candidate meets CPEP standards and has a thorough understanding of the responsibilities of the preceptor role
- Guidance of a CPEP Associate Medical Director
- Detailed reporting progress
Each program feature addresses the concerns of state medical boards and hospitals regarding physician competence. We also provide documentation that can help when applying for medical malpractice insurance and/or hospital privileges.
Physicians must have left the medical field in good standing and plan to reenter areas of clinical practice in which they have had prior clinical training and experience. Reentering physicians switching specialty areas would qualify for the more comprehensive assessment/education process. CPEP cannot guarantee that a preceptor and/or an appropriate setting can be identified to address educational needs.
