A New Professional Credential

Planetree International’s Fellow in Person-Centered Care (FPCC) is a new professional credential. Becoming a Fellow signals not only your personal conviction that person-centered care is the right thing to do, but also your professional track record of person-centered care in action. The process for becoming a Fellow focuses on expanding your knowledge about person-centered approaches, and then applying that knowledge to make healthcare better.

Earning the Fellow in Person-Centered Care credential benefits both you and your organization in the following ways:

  • It builds your credibility as a knowledgeable person-centered care professional with a track-record of success.
  • It creates a sense of personal accomplishment that can propel you in your professional growth.
  • It helps you build the skills and knowledge that will help you contribute to your organization’s efforts to create a culture of person-centered excellence and work toward or sustain Person-Centered Care Certification®
