The credentialing process

Credentialing means the process of verifying qualifications, training, experience, professional standing and other relevant professional attributes of a medical practitioner used for the purpose of forming a view about the competence, performance and professional suitability of the medical practitioner. The 2004 National Standard for Credentialing and Defining the Scope of Clinical Practice is the standard to be applied for the setting of credentials.
