Patient Advocacy Certificate Program

Earn a certificate in Patient Advocacy at the University of Miami in just 4 months. The eight-module, fully online course, prepares students to confidently take and pass the Board Certified Patient Advocate (BCPA) certification examination, while ensuring that students are fully informed about the scope of practice of the patient advocate. 

The main goals of the Patient Advocacy Certificate Program are:

  • To build public trust in the growing profession. 
  • To offer those who are already acting advocates an opportunity to enhance their knowledge.
  • To provide foundation information for new advocates.
  • To ensure current and future advocates have a education program to support their desired goals.

Certification exams and credentialing are not associated or included with the University of Miami certificate programs. Graduates or participants of a University of Miami certificate program are independently responsible for certification requirements, costs, and fees and are encouraged to view the certification website and contact test administrators to find out exam details and logistics.
