ACHE: Become Board Certified in Healthcare Management

Ready to Advance to Fellow?

Why Board Certification - You want to go to board certified physicians for your care, so why not go to an organization with board certified healthcare executives. Earning the distinction of board certification as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives demonstrates your competence, dedication and commitment to lifelong learning. Visit ache.org/FACHE to learn more about Fellow requirements and apply online.

Advancement Information Session - Do you want to learn more about the value of board certification and the steps to completion? Then come to the Advancement Information Session sponsored by the Washington State Healthcare Executive Forum. There are two ways to participate. In-person at or at your desk through a webinar. These sessions will be held twice annually. Our last session was on April 16, 2014. For more information about future information sessions you can contact, Steve Saxe at smsaxe@comcast.net or Mark Shellmyer at mark.shellmyer@multicare.org.

Exam Fee Waiver - Ready to sign up for the exam? Submit your completed Fellow application along with the $250 application fee by June 30 and the $200 fee to take the Board of Governors Examination in Healthcare Management will be waived pending approval of your application. All follow-up materials (such as references) must be submitted by August 31 for the waiver to be valid.

Study Group - So you have decided to take the exam and have started to prepare. ACHE has helpful resources online and provides a preparation course. But how about joining a study group of fellow WSHEF members to help the preparation and motivation. Jacqui Sinatra will be coordinating a study group of other members working to prepare for the exam. You may contact Jacqui directly at jsinatra@highlinemedical.org or 206-988-5755.
