Call For Graduate Success Stories
October 23, 2009
Thanks to all that submitted graduate success stories to ABHES. We have attempted to post to our website as many as possible. It is quite gratifying for those of us at ABHES to read these stories and to acknowledge the continuing accomplishments of our institutions and programs in educating students to become an integral part of the healthcare system.
ABHES again invites its accredited institutions and programs to submit graduate success stories to ABHES for continued website posting this year. Personal accounts of those who have gone through your institution or program to achieve professional success in their chosen fields should be the focus of the stories. We are increasingly hard pressed during these economic times to find individuals who have beaten the odds and realized their dreams. The stories will highlight the role that private postsecondary education plays in local communities by illustrating the type of highly qualified graduates ABHES-accredited institutions and programs are consistently able to produce.
Please adhere to the following guidelines for submission:
1. Stories must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org in a Word file.
2. A digital photo may be included within the story or as a separate file.
3. The deadline date for submission is November 25, 2009.
To allow a diverse contribution, we request that a single campus not submit more than two stories and corporate organizations operating a number of campuses submit no more than five stories regarding graduates from like-named institutions. For example, ABC Education Services operates 10 institutions, 8 with the name D Institution and 2 with the name G Institution. No more than 5 stories from D graduates should be submitted and the campuses should vary.
The Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) is recognized by the United States Secretary of Education for the accreditation of private, postsecondary institutions in the United States offering predominantly allied health education programs and the programmatic accreditation of medical assistant, medical laboratory technician and surgical technology programs leading to a certificate, diploma, Associate of Applied Science, Associate of Occupational Science, or academic associate degrees and programs offered by distance delivery.
