Postgraduate Fellowship Area of ache.org Provides a Vital Resource to Healthcare Organizations and Entrants
Postgraduate fellowships are essential to attract and develop highly qualified healthcare management professionals. ACHE offers robust online resources regarding postgraduate fellowships at ache.org/PostGrad. The materials are for those seeking to develop a postgraduate fellowship, organizations that want to find the best candidate and new healthcare management entrants looking for a fellowship opportunity. The site includes the Directory of Fellowships in Health Services Administration in which organizations post their fellowship offerings and for students to find opportunities they want to pursue. Additionally, there are resources for organizations seeking to start a fellowship—these include sample manuals, templates and checklists.

Tuition Waiver Assistance Program
To reduce the barriers to ACHE educational programming, ACHE makes available a limited number of tuition waivers to Members and Fellows whose organizations lack the resources to fund their tuition for education programs through the Tuition Waiver Assistance Program. Members and Fellows in career transition also are encouraged to apply. Tuition waivers are based on financial need and are available for the following ACHE education programs:

  • Congress on Healthcare Leadership
  • Cluster Seminars
  • Self-Study Programs
  • Online Education Programs
  • Online Tutorial (Board of Governors Exam preparation)
  • ACHE Board of Governors Exam Review Course

All requests are due no less than eight weeks before the program date, except for ACHE self-study courses; see quarterly application deadlines on the FAQ page of the tuition waiver application. Incomplete applications and applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Recipients will be notified of the waiver review panel's decision not less than six weeks before the program date. For ACHE self-study courses, applicants will be notified three weeks after the quarterly application deadline.

If you have questions about the program, please contact Teri Somrak, associate director, Division of Professional Development, at (312) 424-9354 or tsomrak@ache.org. For more information, visit ache.org/Tuitionwaiver.
