Credentialing and privileging are two formal and “hum-drum” activities that we all go through but often know little about. It defines who we are professionally. These functions are not only mysterious and misunderstood to most physicians but may also yield some disappointing and deleterious outcomes on our practices if not given the attention they deserve. A few of the most recent challenges medical staff credentialing committees have been dealing with are the issues of the development of deep-sedation policies and the integration of a growing number of employed physicians onto a medical staff, as employment contracts may conflict with the process contained within the medical staff bylaws.
