GW Health Care Quality Program Receives CAHME Certification

The Health Care Quality Program at the George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences is among the first four programs to receive national certification by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME).

Earning the certification is an important milestone for the program. CAHME is currently developing accreditation standards that schools can apply for in the coming years. The Health Care Quality Program at GW was among 10 health care quality and safety programs across North America chosen to support the effort.

The Health Care Quality Program at GW was developed to meet an emerging demand for quality and patient safety specialists who have the capacity and competence to grow and sustain a culture of continuous improvement at all levels and within every sector of the health care delivery system.
