Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME)

The MPH in Healthcare Management within the School’s Department of Health Law, Policy and Management received initial accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) in Spring 2015. During The Program’s next accreditation visit in Spring 2018, it received a recommendation of full accreditation by the CAHME site visitors. The Program was then approved by the CAHME Board of Directors for full accreditation in Fall 2019, which is valid for 7 years.

The Commission noted several strengths of The Program in its final reports: the expertise of the Career Services Office and the excellent service provided to students; the commitment to students demonstrated by the Department’s leadership and faculty; the depth and innovative nature of team-based learning experiences within the Healthcare Management Program; and finally, the rigorous vetting process for the Program’s faculty which asks candidates to demonstrate their excellence in teaching as well as their accomplishments as scholars. Our student recruitment processes, specifically the Select Scholars program, were identified by the site visitors as a nation-wide best practice and particular strength of our recruitment efforts during our Spring 2018 survey.

Inquiries about CAHME accreditation should be directed to Dr. Chris Louis, Director of the Healthcare Management program, at louisc@bu.edu.
