SPRING HOUSE, PA, UNITED STATES, March 17, 2023 / -- The Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) Board of Directors approved the initial accreditation of Georgetown University’s, Executive Master’s in Clinical Quality, Safety, and Leadership (EM-CQSL) for a three-year term.

“The goal of our program is to create future leaders in the quality and safety field to improve healthcare for patients, families, and providers,” says Carole Hemmelgarn, director of the EM-CQSL, a part of the Biomedical Graduate Education program at Georgetown University Medical Center. “This accreditation is representative of the outstanding faculty at Georgetown University, and their excellence in teaching current and real-world curriculum that prepares graduates to be sought-after leaders in their field.

The EM-CQSL, developed by Georgetown University Medical Center in collaboration with MedStar Health, is an online program representing the real-world environment that healthcare providers and patients encounter every day. The program immerses learners in advanced theory and concepts of healthcare quality, safety science, and organizational leadership, using a unique interprofessional learning format.

“CAHME's mission is to advance the quality of healthcare management education globally. CAHME-accredited programs have successfully navigated a thorough and careful accreditation process measured by experts in the field,” said Dr. Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE, president and CEO of CAHME.

Since 1968, the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) has served the public interest by advancing the quality of healthcare management education globally. The 139 CAHME Accredited programs, and those that are in candidacy, the certified programs in population health management and in healthcare quality and safety are leading the field in setting the standards to advance the quality of healthcare management education.

CAHME works with leading academic programs and numerous healthcare practitioners to ensure that graduates entering the healthcare field have undergone an educational process meeting rigorous, measurable standards for effectiveness. The result is a formal academic education focusing on key competencies, plus practical experiences. This enables new graduates to quickly add value to an organization and grow into future leaders. CAHME is the only organization recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation to grant accreditation to individual academic programs offering a graduate degree in healthcare management.
