CAHME at 50: What’s Ahead for our Next Fifty Years?

Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE

This year marks the 50th anniversary for the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education—a remarkable achievement that we’ve attained because of visionary leaders in the past and the dedication of CAHME’s academic, healthcare, and corporate partners who believe in the value of healthcare management education and what it contributes to the health of our nation.

This summer, CAHME will celebrate this milestone with a special 50th anniversary celebration and panel discussion to be held on Tuesday, June 12 at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia. Our panel discussion will bring together industry leaders and experts to explore the question: What three steps must CAHME, its accredited programs, and the profession take to ensure another 50 years of advancing the quality of healthcare management education?

Our panelists will include:

  • Gerald Glandon, PhD, president & CEO of the Association of University Programs in Health Administration;
  • Carla Smith, FHIMSS, executive vice president of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society;
  • Virginia Calega, MD, vice president for medical management and policy, Independence Blue Cross;
  • Rulon Stacey, PhD, FACHE, managing director of Navigant; and
  • Christine C. Winn, FACHE, senior vice president of the MD Anderson Cooper Cancer Institute

I am also very grateful for the support of:

Because of their generosity, this event is FREE and open to all attendees of the AUPHA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia and healthcare executives and healthcare management students in the greater Philadelphia region.

Registration is required and space is limited, so I hope you will register today.

CAHME Boot Camp Will Get You in Shape for Accreditation

Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE

The CAHME Boot Camp is a great opportunity to get the latest on CAHME accreditation standards and details on the accreditation process. It’s considered a “must attend” event for programs at all stages of the accreditation process.

This year’s Boot Camp will focus on new competency-based education standards that were introduced in 2017. We revamped the curriculum to better align with the needs of programs approaching first-time accreditation, programs going for re-accreditation, and those that need a refresher on accreditation standards. The session is highly interactive, focusing on technical instructions and hands-on practice. You will leave knowing more and being better prepared!

I am grateful for our outstanding Boot Camp instructors, Daniel Gentry, PhD, MHA, clinical professor and MHA program director from the Department of Health Management and Policy at the University of Iowa College of Public Health and Kevin D. Broom, PhD, associate professor of health policy and management, and director the MHA and MHA/MBA programs at the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh. Daniel and Kevin are deeply knowledgeable about accreditation and will help you fully understand the new criteria and how programs can best comply.

The Boot Camp will be held on Sunday, March 25 in Chicago, at 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, right before ACHE Congress that begins the next day. A ticket to the Boot Camp includes admission to the special CAHME Awards luncheon, where attendees will learn how five programs have advanced graduate healthcare management education.

I encourage you not to miss the Boot Camp. Registering today will ensure you get your spot.  Space is limited, and only a handful of openings remain.
