The Certified Surgical Services Manager (CSSM) certification program is for perioperative leaders interested in improving and validating their managerial knowledge and skills so as to advance the performance of their surgical services department.
CSSM certification validates the achievement of the baccalaureate-prepared manager who demonstrates current proficiency as an administrator in the perioperative (pre-, intra-, and postoperative) setting.
CCI delivers the CSSM exam to recognize the important role managers have in directing staff, programs and budgets in delivering safe patient care. The purpose of the CSSM exam is to provide recognition for the important and distinct role of surgical services managers.
