ACHE is the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders. Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. Only 9,200 healthcare executives hold this distinction. To obtain Fellow status, candidates must fulfill multiple requirements, including passing a comprehensive examination, meeting academic and experiential criteria, earning continuing education credits and demonstrating professional/community involvement. Fellows are also committed to ongoing professional development and undergo recertification every three years.

For more information regarding the FACHE credential and how you can achieve this professional distinction, please reference the THEF Advance to Fellow webpage at for informational resources and to contact the Fellowship Advancement Committee for additional guidance.
