Demonstrate knowledge and judgment

of fetal heart rate monitoring principles

defined by national consensus

Who are we? Inteleos is a global non-profit community of over 140,000+ medical professionals united in assuring that patients obtain the highest quality healthcare. For more than 45+ years, Inteleos has defined excellence through quality patient care and certification. Inteleos is the governing and managing organization for the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography® (ARDMS®), the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement™ (APCA™), and the Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Certification Academy™. The Inteleos Foundation oversees the philanthropic work for the organization.

What do we provide? Inteleos provides a Fetal Monitoring Credentialing (FMC) examination, developed by experts in the field that will be available to physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, nurses, and other perinatal clinicians who are involved in the management of labor and delivery patients.

How are we distinct? In addition to using recommended NICHD nomenclature and offering traditional knowledge-based questions, the FMC also assesses provider judgment by using the script concordance test, an evidence-based tool that measures mental processes in uncertain clinical situations.

Why are we doing this? Inteleos' FMC tool is intended to be adjunct to other educational programs in that FMC provides a mechanism to measure provider proficiency, to determine if learning has occurred, and to effect change.

Credential Designation C-FMC is the designation for an obstetrical nurse, nurse midwife, or obstetrician who has earned credentialing in electronic fetal monitoring from Inteleos.
