Early Registration for CAHME Accreditation Boot Camp is Now Available

It’s not too soon to reserve your space for the first CAHME Accreditation Boot Camp of 2018, which will be held in conjunction with the ACHE Congress on Healthcare Leadership, on March 25, 2018. Sign up early to enjoy a discount and coordinate with your travel plans for the ACHE Congress.

Kevin Broom, PhD, (standing) leads a discussion at last year’s CAHME Accreditation Boot Camp.

This year’s Boot Camp agenda will focus on how competency-based education aligns with CAHME accreditation criteria. Attending the Boot Camp is the best way for you to strengthen your knowledge and understanding of CAHME accreditation and what it means for your program. This year’s program is revamped, based on attendee input, and will include exclusive web access to pre-Camp materials, and more group work during the Camp.

You will get involved, as instruction is engaging, interactive, and will offer a variety of tools, technical instructions, and hands-on practice. Boot Camp instructors include Daniel Gentry, PhD, MHA, from the Department of Health Management and Policy at the University of Iowa College of Public Health; and Kevin Broom, PhD, Director of MHA and MHA/MBA Programs at the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health.

Early registration (by December 31, 2017) is $800—a $100 discount off general registration. CAHME Accreditation Boot Camps are popular and space is limited.

Register today to claim your spot.

We look forward to seeing you there.

CAHME Accredited Programs Dominate NAHSE Case Competition

Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE

CAHME-accredited programs dominated the recent case competition sponsored by the National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE), held last month in San Antonio, TX. The top three finishers in the 22nd Everett V. Fox Student Case Competition represented CAHME-accredited programs at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Saint Louis University, and Ohio State University.

With a theme of “Creating a Healthy America Together: Serving our Communities,” the case competition asked teams to focus on making Oakland, CA, “The Healthiest City in America.”  The UNC team took first place with a presentation that went beyond traditional boundaries of healthcare to include issues such as how the city can address “food deserts” and improve access to fresh food and produce.

I’ve attended the NAHSE annual conferences for nearly a decade. NAHSE’s focus on mentorship and career growth for African-American healthcare executives and graduate healthcare management students makes it one of the most effective forces for enhancing diversity and cultural competencies in healthcare. This work is vitally important, and is consistent with CAHME’s mission of supporting the development of future healthcare leaders.

CAHME tracks different student case competitions from around the country on our web site, and I encourage you to check out the list of winners and upcoming events. Case competitions are a great way for students to put their classroom learning into effect in the “real world.” It is heartening to see the innovation embodied by winning teams.

Congratulations to everyone at NAHSE and to the student winners of this year’s competition!
