What is HFMA Academy?

The HFMA Academy is the study centre of HFMA. It offers a range of online CPD accredited courses and professional qualifications in healthcare business and finance. It also works in partnership with NAPC and Capsticks to deliver the Diploma in advanced primary care management. The HFMA Academy is a registered apprenticeship training provider that delivers healthcare-focused apprenticeships.

The academy specialises in delivering healthcare education for professionals working in or with the NHS, who require flexibility and support. We pride ourselves on attracting coaches and tutors who have worked at the frontline of health and social care, many of them as directors and CEOs, meaning their teaching is grounded in real experience. The academy has developed strong expertise in online learning and has hundreds of learners and a growing alumni.
