Sample job description: Credentialing specialist

The relationship of hospital size, medical staff services department size, and number of credentialed practitioners isn’t a sharp line. MSPs’ roles are fluid.

Well-formed job descriptions foster consistency that counterbalances these uncertainties. MSPs can reference the descriptions to understand their responsibilities, budget worktime, and address requests from practitioners that fall outside their purview. Managers can use the information to establish expectations, create time-management logs, and determine appropriate staffing levels.

Keeping with these considerations, today's free resource is a sample job description for a credentialing specialist.
