The ultimate credential in healthcare management is the Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE) credential, which means you are board certified in healthcare management. Earning the distinction of board certification as a Fellow of ACHE signifies your expertise, experience and committment to ethics, continuing education and professional development. Just as members of the medical staff are board certified, having the FACHE credential after your name indicates a level of achievement in the profession.
Nearly 40 leading executive search firms recognize the significance of board certification in healthcare management and note that FACHE-credentialed candidates have a competitive advantage.
To obtain Fellow status, candidates must fulfil multiple requirements, including passing a comprehensive examination, meeting academic and experiential criteria, earning continuing education credits and demonstrating professional and community involvement. Fellows are also committed to ongoing professional development and undergo recertification every three years.
