WOULD YOU LIKE TO SERVE AS AN ON-SITE EVALUATOR FOR ABHES?
The Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) continuously seeks new evaluators to ensure a continued pool of qualified and trained individuals serve on site visit teams.
Educators and practitioners including distance education specialists in numerous health care disciplines are in demand and are invited to participate. Individuals possessing the leadership abilities to serve as team leaders and individuals specialized in the following programs, but not limited to:
Evaluators are called upon to participate on approximately one to four site visits per year, depending on need and availability. Prior to participation on a site visit evaluators undergo a training program, either through attendance at a workshop or from an online training program, and/or mentorship with ABHES staff and mentor. All expenses incurred during the site visit are paid for by the institution; in addition, a small honorarium is also provided to the evaluator.
While serving as an evaluator requires time away from work and home, the benefits of participating in on-site evaluation visits are immeasurable both for you and for the institutions. Not only does the training and participation heighten one’s level of awareness and understanding of accreditation requirements, but also provides the ability to observe from the inside how other institutions and programs operate. Participating on an evaluation team is an invaluable experience.
