What is an MSP?  

Medical Services Professionals are responsible for the credentialing and recredentialing of all physicians and allied health practitioners--making sure that your doctor is who they claim to be and that they have the proper qualifications and credentials to care for patients. MSPs maintain databanks to track physician training, experience, and licensure, as well as manage an accredited continuing medical education (CME) program to help physicians maintain their clinical competency.
