Mission, Goals and Objectives
 

ABHES' stated mission is to enhance the quality of education and training and promote institutional and programmatic accountability through systematic and consistent program evaluation. The key to ABHES’ mission is to assure the quality of the programs it accredits, and assist in the improvement of the programs. This quality-determination is accomplished by rigorous and systematic evaluation based on valid standards. ABHES’ goals and objectives focus on three key areas: recognition, resources, and service; all of which ABHES believes are essential and paramount to the achievement of its mission.


The objectives of ABHES are as follows:

    a. To enhance the quality of education and training and promote institutional and programmatic accountability in the institutions and programs it accredits.

    b. To establish eligibility criteria and evaluation standards for the administration and operation of institutions providing predominantly allied health education and programs in specific allied health disciplines.

    c. To ensure that eligibility criteria and evaluation standards are relevant, valid and reliable; and predictive of successful qualitative outcomes through a comprehensive program of systematic review, enhancement, and follow-up.

    d. To enhance employment outcomes through quality improvement of institutions and programs.

    e. To promote sound business and ethical standards.
