CAHME’s Corporate Member ACHE Announces Career Resource Center for Students

The American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) is one of CAHME’s founders, and has been a longtime supporter of promoting the profession of healthcare management and the importance of accreditation in graduate healthcare management education. I recently met with ACHE President Deborah Bowen and COO Liz Summy, who told me about some new development for students.

ACHE’s Career Resource Center supports healthcare management professionals in advancing their career.  This year, ACHE announced the introduction of CareerEDGE SE, a valuable career planning tool which includes a five-step framework for career success specially designed for Student Associates of ACHE.

Faculty from CAHME accredited programs should feel confident in pointing to ACHE as an essential resource to students as they plan their career.  Needless to say, ACHE reinforces the value of the CAHME accreditation standard, and acknowledges that CAHME accredited programs meet clear criteria related to curriculum content and design, faculty and university resources, and career development and progress of a program’s graduates.

CAHME thanks ACHE for their support and is proud of our long partnership in the ongoing development of the profession of healthcare management.

CAHME – Baylor Scott and White Health Award Program

CAHME and Baylor Scott & White Health Announce Award Program for Excellence in Quality Improvement Education.

With the Olympics beginning last Friday, we are reminded of how talent, hard work, dedication, a community, and commitment go into creating an Olympic athlete. The Olympics inspires us, not just because of winning performance, but because it holds a mirror to ourselves to remind us that we can be great within our own profession, within our own community, and with the help of others. Olympic athletes frequently talk about how they are part of “something bigger.” Similarly, CAHME programs are part of “something bigger.”

While not on the same world stage as the Olympics, CAHME created a series of awards that serves to hold up programs that are exceptional. These programs push themselves to be successful, in the same spirit as Olympic athletes.

This year, CAHME Awards expands to include the CAHME-Baylor Scott & White Health Award for Excellence in Quality Improvement Education. The goal of this award is to set benchmarks of excellence to inspire our students…our future healthcare leaders…to know the important role of systems and statistics, structure and organization, teamwork and individual perseverance… and in the words of Carl Couch, MD in “Accountable“, “to drive a sustained focus on and commitment to improvement in long-term health outcomes”. We are thankful to Baylor Scott & White Health for their support to make this happen.

To learn more about the new CAHME – Baylor Scott & White Health Award, review our press release.

Create Healthcare Leaders Who Can Create The Change Required for Healthcare

46aea257-b729-4d36-98ae-cb65e0dd0d551During the July 2016 AHA Health Forum Leadership Summit, I had the opportunity to spend some time at the “Top of the Hyatt” with my friends Kevin and Jackie Freiberg.  They are best known for authoring the 1995 groundbreaking book, “Nuts! Southwest Airlines’ Crazy Recipe for Business and Personal Success.” Their latest book is called “Cause“, and it examines how to make a difference by serving a purpose far beyond the bottom line.
We talked about CAHME, and the Freibergs said, “CAHME is not about creating leaders who can work in a changed environment; it is rather about creating healthcare leaders who can create the change required for healthcare to meet the future needs of the communities served.”
This is a humbling task.  You accomplish it by working side-by-side to make each other better; CAHME is the conduit.  Program faculty and healthcare executives spent more than 105,000 volunteer hours last year on revising our standards, in accreditation council, on our board, on committees, and on site visits.  CAHME through our volunteers reinforces that working together as a community of scholars, we can make healthcare better by advancing the quality of healthcare management education.   That is our profession.  That is our cause.
I look forward to meeting our corporate members, healthcare organizations, sponsors, program faculty, and our students, as I continue to learn your perspective on the future of graduate healthcare management education.
Let me know what you think. I can be reached at, or at (301) 298-1825.
