FACHE® Recertification: It's Never Too Late to Begin Planning

Earning the distinction of board certification in healthcare management as an ACHE Fellow is a great career accomplishment. Whether you are one of the many members set to recertify this year or within the next three years, you can get a head start now to maintain this prestigious credential.

To ensure that all Fellows maintain the integrity of the ACHE credentialing program, Fellows are required to recertify every three years. To continue demonstrating your professionalism, ethical decision making, competence, leadership and commitment to lifelong learning, please be sure to recertify your FACHE credential by Dec. 31.

Visit My ACHE to check your recertification status, including the current number of continuing education credit hours you have earned so far.


Postgraduate Fellowships: Creating Future Leaders

Postgraduate fellowships contribute to the development of future leaders and provide tangible benefits to sponsoring organizations and the profession. The Directory of Postgraduate Administrative Fellowships gives sponsoring organizations the tools needed to develop a fellowship, including detailed resources on logistics, compensation and benefits, recruiting, onboarding and assessing candidates. Organizations that post opportunities in the directory increase their visibility for students seeking postgraduate administrative fellowships on a national level.

Whether you are an organization creating a fellowship, a student seeking a postgraduate administrative fellowship, or an organization ready to post or update a current listing, you'll find a variety of resources available at ache.org/PostGrad.


 

Community Forums Enhance Members’ Experience

ACHE members with affiliated interests can communicate, collaborate and advance.through participation in one of four community groups. These groups include the Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum, the LGBT Forum, the Healthcare Consultants Forum and the Physician Executives Forum. Members can explore one forum or more for missions and benefits that align with their professional backgrounds and commitment to diversity and inclusion. Inform members in your area of these communities, and encourage them to join the ones that best meet their professional needs and goals.

Join for an annual fee of $100 each, in addition to your ACHE membership dues. All benefits are accessible online and include a quarterly newsletter, an exclusive LinkedIn Group and special designation in ACHE’s online Member Directory.


Healthcare Consultants Forum Member Directory: Connecting Executives to Consultants

The Healthcare Consultants Forum Member Directory offers a robust search functionality to help you identify a consultant who meets your needs. And if you are a consultant looking to gain visibility with decision makers, consider joining the Healthcare Consultants Forum. The forum also offers resources tailored to a healthcare consultant’s specific career development needs.


Local Prep Course Offered for the BOG Exam

A new chapter-led review course is available to help ACHE Members prepare for the Board of Governors Examination. The course, titled "BOG Exam Prep: Brought to You by ACHE and Your Local Chapter," includes a thorough content review of the 10 knowledge areas addressed in the Exam, practice test questions and test-taking strategies. Participants may earn up to 12 hours of ACHE Face-to-Face Education credit when they complete the course. Members can contact their local chapter regarding an offering of the course in their area.

The course is also available as an ACHE Choice program. Contact Katherine M. Stack, FACHE, manager, program development, Department of Professional Development, at (312) 424-9304 or kstack@ache.org for more information.


ACHE Joins a Partnership Focused on Improving Diagnostic Quality and Safety

Did you know that inaccurate or delayed diagnoses are responsible for roughly 80,000 deaths per year in the U.S.? ACHE recognizes the importance of supporting improvements in diagnostic quality and safety in medicine, which is why we have joined the Coalition to Improve Diagnosis. The coalition is a collaboration of more than 50 leading healthcare organizations convened and led by the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine.

For more information about the Coalition to Improve Diagnosis, visit improvediagnosis.org/cid/. For more information about ACHE’s leading for safety efforts, visit ache.org/Safety.


Planning for the Continuation of Your Career

Whether you’re starting a new position or planning for retirement, building a comprehensive approach is critical to achieving your goals. To help you drive long-term success in a new role, ACHE’s Onboarding Resources is a great place to begin. If you are nearing the end of your career, our Encore Career Resources will help you make sound intellectual, psychological and financial considerations. No matter where you are in your career, we remain devoted to your success. For more on these and additional tools, visit ache.org/CareerResources.
