Preparing for the Exam

There are several educational opportunities to help you prepare for the exam. The Online Healthcare Value Analysis Course is a six-hour comprehensive overview of the four pillars of an effective healthcare value analysis process and program: Governance and Structure, Methodology, Professionalism and Business Ethics, and Finance. Participants are able to complete the course on their own time.

Each year at the AHVAP Annual Conference, attendees have the option of enrolling in the pre-conference CVAHP Prep Workshop. The two hour session is a high-level review of the four pillars intended for experienced practitioners who meet the eligibility requirements to sit for the exam. Past attendees that registered for and schedule their exam within 90 days advised the review was instrumental in successfully completing the exam.


The 2021 CVAHP Prep Workshop was recorded this year! The workshop will soon be available on the AHVAP website for anyone to register for and attend ANYTIME. This 1.5-hour presentation includes the didactic content from this year’s conference session. Watch for the announcement of the availability.

Finally, members may tap into past webinars and podcasts to review practical application of the Healthcare Value Analysis process in the AHVAP Education archives.
