Healthcare Quality & Safety Certified:
The Purpose of Certification
The CAHME Certification Program (“Certification”) is designed to recognize healthcare quality and safety (“HQS”) programs that meet Certification Requirements and have come together to establish distinct academic accreditation standards for master’s degree programs in HQS (“Program” and “Programs”). Certification is intended to serve as a bridge to accreditation while CAHME finalizes the accreditation process for HQS programs. Thus, Certified status is not permanent, does not indicate an accredited status, and does not guarantee eventual, future accreditation. Additionally, once the accreditation process is finalized and published on the CAHME web site, Programs will no longer be considered for Certification; instead, they must pursue accreditation.
