Why Get Certified

Why get certified? Because earning a certification validates your proficiency. And, the benefits of getting certified range from higher salary to increased job fulfillment to improved organizational performance.

If you’re personally interested in earning one or more HFMA certifications, know you’re taking the first step in increasing your earnings potential and standing out among your peers. If you’re interested in having your team certified, you’re amplifying the importance of professional development and goal setting in your organization.

In addition to the Certified Healthcare Financial Professional (CHFP), HFMA also offers specialized certifications in revenue cycle, accounting and finance, business intelligence, managed care, and physician practice management. And, when you become a member of HFMA, all certification fees and study materials are included in your membership dues – that’s whether you earn one or all of our designations.

HFMA partners with Credly to issue digital badges to all certified individuals which provides an easy way to share your designation through your email signature, LinkedIn profile, and more. You earned the designation and digital badging enables your ability to show off your accomplishment.

Explore HFMA certifications to determine the right path for you, your team, or your entire organization. Need assistance? Contact us at careerservices@hfma.org.
