The medical staff consists of physicians (MD, DO), dentists (DDS, DMD) and podiatrists (DPM). Our advanced practice professionals consists of nurses (APN, FNP, CNM) and other disciplines such as physician assistants (PA), occupational therapists (OT) and doctors of philosophy (PhDs). Many of our medical professionals hold privileges at multiple Scripps facilities.

Credentialing and privileging

The Scripps Centralized Credentialing (SCC) office, in collaboration with Medical Staff Administration, conducts the credentialing for all Scripps entities, including our hospitals, clinics and health plans. Our rigorous credentialing process ensures that Scripps follows all federal and state regulatory requirements, as well as The Joint Commission accreditation standards for verifying credentials and granting privileges to qualified practitioners.


This process is performed at initial evaluation and reappointment, as well as ongoing monitoring of every Scripps physician’s education and training, current competence, certifications, licensure and professional conduct criteria. Much of the verified information gathered about our practitioners is displayed in the Doctor Finder on Scripps.org for physicians and prospective patients to view.
