Welcome to CouncilMet.org

The Council for Medical Education and Testing (CMET) is a non-profit organization providing the only physician specific certification in wound healing fully produced and administered by a physician specific organization and available to all presribing physicians. The exam is Beta-tested, peer reviewed and now in its nineth year has demonstrated proven viability and withstood the test of time. By numbers alone it is de facto the largest and most widely accepted certification of its kind in the United States today. CMET is the physician’s choice for wound-healing certification.  

The CMET cerification advances wound care to a new level. It brings us one step closer to the goal of specialty recognition. The next challenge will be the initiation of residencies and fellowships which are commensurate with the evolution of knowledge and practice. This examination is available to all prescribing physicians (MD, DO, DPM).

Newly Practicing Podiatrists can sit for CMET Physician Certification in Wound Healing immediately after completing a 3 year residency. This is due to the national standards requirements built into the CPME approved 3 year residency and the competency examinations related to the successful completion of this training program.

** The CMET exam is available online and may be taken in the convenience of your home, office or similar setting. **

Easy preparation is offered online through our affiliate organization, the Academy of Physicians in Wound Healing (APWH). The online Review and Refresher Course is user-friendly, with the ability to stop and resume lectures at any point.
(12.35 podiatric CME, 12 AMA Category 1).  For more information, go to elearning.apwh.org

A Note from CMET President - Susan O. Hilsman, MD, FAPWHc

"The physician wound certification in 2010 was a special certification for me. I had studied and practiced Wound Care for eight years prior to taking the exam. Knowing that there was no residency but also knowing that a physician certification required going the extra mile meant a lot.  I shall recertify again this year and encourage others to do so. The exam, like the practice of wound care, is challenging, and at the end of the day a validation of worthwhile pursuits."
