FACHE Requirements Have Eased

Patrick Altenhofen, FACHE

Over the last few months it has been so exciting to hear about the interest from KAHCE members in advancing to Fellowship and receiving their FACHE. For those interested and unsure of next steps, please keep in mind that the requirements have changed.

  • Be an ACHE member for at least 1 year (this is the most recent change – it used to be 3 years!)
  • Have earned a master's degree (or other post-baccalaureate degree)
  • Currently hold an executive healthcare management position and have a minimum of five years of healthcare management experience
  • Two professional references from current fellows (FACHE)
  • Complete a minimum of 36 continuing education hours related to healthcare management and administration within the three years prior to submitting an application (12 hours must be ACHE Face-to-Face education)
  • Complete four volunteer activities within the three years prior to submitting an application. Two of these activities must be community/civic and two of these must be healthcare-related activities

For those that have made the decision to work towards achieving your FACHE, but struggle to keep track of your progress, use the ACHE website (https://www.ache.org/fache/start-or-continue-my-application).

I know everyone is busy but there truly is no better way to continue to challenge yourself as a healthcare executive and showcase your expertise than to achieve and maintain your FACHE credentials.
