HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Chad Fisher, Esq., FACMPE, department administrator of Marshall Orthopaedics, has become a fellow in the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE).

ACMPE is the certification entity of the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA). Fellowship in ACMPE’s industry-leading program demonstrates mastery and expertise in the profession of medical practice management. 

To achieve fellowship, Fisher first earned the certified medical practice executive (CMPE) designation by completing a minimum of 50 continuing education credit hours and passing rigorous examinations that assess knowledge of the broad scope of medical practice management, as outlined in the Body of Knowledge for Medical Practice Management. To earn fellowship, Fisher submitted a professional paper, Strategic Business Plan Proposal to Provide Sports Medicine Services to Rural Secondary Schools, documenting the objectives and results of an investigation into a health-care management topic.

Today, MGMA membership is comprised of more than 6,600 individuals who have attained CMPE or ACMPE fellow status or who seek certification.

A Barboursville native, Fisher has served as department administrator of Marshall Orthopaedics since joining Marshall Health in 2012. During this time, the department has grown to include 38 providers who provide general and surgical orthopaedic care at 12 locations across the tri-state.
