CAHME Announces Fall 2020 Accreditation Decisions (11/23/2020)

Accreditation is at the core of CAHME’s mission to advance the quality of healthcare management education. Achieving CAHME Accreditation is the culmination of significant effort on the part of healthcare management programs and demonstrates that programs meet our criteria and high standards as established by leading academics and practitioners.

I am pleased to announce that after thorough and careful deliberation, the CAHME Board of Directors approved the initial accreditation of Florida A&M University’s (FAMU), Master of Health Administration program.

“The process of becoming accredited by CAHME has helped to improve the program. We believe that being CAHME-accredited says to our students and to the employers who will hire them that FAMU is preparing our graduates to be well equipped to succeed as leaders in healthcare. The program faculty under the direction of the program coordinator, Dr. Marisa Lewis, are also proud that with this accreditation, FAMU now has the notoriety of being the only HBCU with a CAHME-accredited program”, said Jullet (Jaye) Davis Weaver, PhD, MHA, FAMU Professor and Division Director.

The Board also re-accredited nine programs (all of these programs were re-accredited for the maximum seven years):

No matter where these programs take place—whether on campus or in virtual settings—we are proud of the quality of these programs and their commitment to our mission. In total, 118 programs meet CAHME’s accreditation standards, and 7 programs are certified in healthcare quality and safety. Visit cahme.org/advance to learn more about all CAHME-accredited programs.

On behalf of the CAHME Board of Directors, congratulations to these institutions and their leadership for meeting our high standards, and for joining with all CAHME programs to advance the quality of healthcare management education.
