Why CAHME Accreditation Is Important
Prospective students know that selecting a CAHME accredited healthcare management program means they are assured the program strives to be exceptional. While many colleges and universities purport to offer training for this demanding field, programs that seek and maintain CAHME accreditation have gone further. They’ve adopted the philosophy that accreditation is a Continuous Quality Improvement process.
- Without accreditation, quality is hard to distinguish. The lack of an accrediting process leaves students unsure of the quality of the educational experience.
- Employers want assurance that graduate’s learning and experience properly prepared them for the wide variety of management responsibilities they’ll encounter.
Healthcare Education Program Directors that distinguish their programs with CAHME accreditation are better positioned to compete for high caliber student applicants. Please visit our Search an Accredited Program
