ACMQ Study Guide

Ready to obtain your CMQ (Certified in Medical Quality) designation? We are excited to announce the launch of our new Online Study Guide to help you reach that goal! ACMQ is here to help with a new study resource centered around the recently published American College of Medical Quality (ACMQ) text, Medical Quality Management, 3rd Edition. The study guide will be organized in 11 chapters with each module being hosted by MQM 3rd Edition authors and experts. The text and online study guide together are fundamental resources as one prepares for the Certification in Medical Quality (CMQ) examination offered by the American Board of Medical Quality (ABMQ). Use the MQM 3rd Edition text as a reference for useful information in one’s day-to-day work and take a deeper look into each chapter with our Study Guide modules. Like the text, these modules contain a comprehensive overview of the healthcare topics essential to a practicing professional with responsibilities for programs in quality and patient safety. Including audio from the authors and experts themselves in each module elevates the content to a new level resulting in instruction that is not only more engaging but invaluable.

The study guide will be hosted on the ACMQ website and is offered as individual modules or a package containing the full set of 11 chapters. Each module can be accessed asynchronously by members as an adjunct in reviewing and learning the content contained in each chapter. Check your email and for additional details!
