To achieve this aspirational goal, ACSM must demonstrate that ACSM-CEPs and ACSM-EPs are uniquely qualified health care professionals that markedly improve patient outcomes and reduce health care costs.

ACSM, Dr. Kraus and other members of the Reimbursement Task Force held this special town hall on Nov. 22, 2021 and explored one of the key fundamentals of workforce development – preparation. Specifically, the role and purpose of programmatic accreditation to prepare exercise physiologists and clinical exercise physiologists adequately and uniformly for the workforce.
