Fellow Status: Your Members' Next Step in Career Advancement

The importance of earning the distinction of board certification as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives cannot be overstated. Encouraging your chapter members to take the next step in advancing their careers by achieving Fellow status benefits their professional goals and the healthcare management profession as it demonstrates a healthcare leader’s competence, leadership skills and commitment to excellence in the field.

Fellow applicants who successfully meet all requirements by Dec. 31, 2019, including passing the Board of Governors Examination, will be eligible to participate in the 2020 Convocation Ceremony at the 2020 Congress on Healthcare Leadership.

Complimentary Resources for the BOG Exam Available

For Members starting on the FACHE® journey to board certification and the FACHE credential, several resources are available. These complimentary resources include quarterly Advancement Information webinars, designed to supplement other Board of Governors Exam study resources, such as the Board of Governors Review Course or Online Tutorial.

Opportunity to List Your Postgraduate Fellowship

As a healthcare leader, you know how crucial it is to attract and develop highly qualified professionals in your organization. If your organization is offering a postgraduate fellowship, we encourage you to add it to ACHE's complimentary Directory of Postgraduate Administrative Fellowships at ache.org/Postgrad. You may add a new listing or update a previous one at any time by completing the online listing form. The directory can help you gain exposure and start attracting top-notch applicants to your program. 

Questions? Please contact Audrey Meyer, membership coordinator, at (312) 424-9308, or via email at ameyer@ache.org, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central time.
