Review the online course and successfully complete the end-of-course assessment prior to taking ‘Step 2” below.
  • Step 2: Enroll in CHFP Module II - Operational Excellence assessment. The HFMA Operational Excellence exam includes exercises and case studies on the application of business acumen in healthcare. Module II Prerequisites: Successful completion of module I and active HFMA membership (paid student, business partner or professional*) is required to enroll in module II.

CHFP Testimonial:

"The Certified Healthcare Financial Professional credential was the missing piece in my extensive healthcare background. Being certified has broadened my possibilities in controlling my future or career path."- Isabelle M. Guembou, LEAN 6 Sigma Executive, Organizational Improvement and Planning

  • I was awarded the CHFP certification on 1/30/2022 and it is active until 05/31/2025. I can see this in my account under My Development/certifications. I am current with my membership.

    In My Development/My Registrations, I don't see a date against the BOH course, the operational excellence exam and  the CSAF course that I have started a while ago.

    Also, how do I add this in my profiles under My Accomplishments? I currently see an option to add CRCR Expert but I have not attempted this certification.

    Thanks in advance,


  • Satish, thank you for following up. I will review your certification records and respond back via email. Thank you for your patience.
