Introduction of a specialist examination for medical practice assistants has proven to work well

28 octobre 2022 – The further training to become a medical practice coordinator (medizinische Praxiskoordinatorin / medizinischer Praxiskoordinator, MPK), introduced in 2015, meets the expectations of the medical profession. This is shown in a report adopted by the Federal Council at its meeting on 26 October 2022. Continuing education with a federal certificate is popular among medical practice assistants (medizinische Praxisassistentin / medizinischer Praxisassistent, MPA) and contributes to the quality of care. The regular review of the MPA's catalogue of learning objectives and the MPK's professional profile by the interested professional associations and organisations provides an instrument for adapting the professional profile to the expectations of service providers and the needs of patients in the future.
