CAHME Accredited Programs

CAHME stands for Commission on Accredidation of Healthcare Management Education.  This accreditation is considered the gold standard for MHA, MBA, MPA, and other programs with focuses in Healthcare Management.  Each school wishing to receive this accreditation must follow rigorous standards and visits from CAHME.  The goal is to create a consistent standard for the best healthcare management education.

Often these programs are considered the top programs throughout the world.  In addition, many MHA Fellowship positions require you to come from a school that is CAHME Accredited.  Although it is not absolutely necessary to attend one of these programs, it certainly can help if you have little or no experience in the healthcare field.  Having said that, if you do have experience and are looking to grow your career, the accreditation will likely impact you less.  Nevertheless, here is a list below of CAHME Accredited Programs.

Although the list is not complete, we are working to make sure that we have profiles of every health administration degree program throughout the world.  You should notice that some of these programs are MBA programs.  CAHME will have accredited MBA programs because there is a substantial focus on healthcare administration.
