Clinical Excellence certification

What makes an exceptional clinician?

At The Institute of Clinical Excellence we believe the answer is proficiency in key foundational areas along with specialized knowledge and skill in a domain where the clinician is highly passionate.  We have designed our comprehensive clinical excellence certification in direct accordance with this philosophy. 

The ICE certification track requires successful completion of all core courses and two additional elective classes in your specialization area of choice.  With all course work completed the clinician sits for a live comprehensive written and practical exam offered every April on the Friday before our ICE Sampler event in Las Vegas. Purchasing the certification exam ticket allows the clinician to attend the Sampler for no additional charge the weekend following testing. 

See below for the required core courses and the list of elective specialization options.
