The National Conference on Allied Health Education is an annual event hosted by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). This event brings together the best of the best in postsecondary health care education. Each year’s conference promises an industry-current agenda that features dynamic keynote and special guest speakers from industry leaders, educators, and those in the know regarding issues facing health care education.

An array of informative and timely break-out sessions aim to assure attendees gain a renewed dedication to health care education and most importantly, the students served. ABHES-accredited institutions and programs will not want to miss the Annual Membership meeting held during the conference that brings together commissioners and staff to present on the year’s accomplishments, tasks at hand, and subject matter most prevalent to the ABHES membership.

A variety of exhibitors showcasing products and services that cater to those in health care education will be on hand throughout the conference. We encourage attendees to bring plenty of business cards and visit with each exhibitor.

ABHES also hosts several pre-conference trainings and workshops, including the following:

  • Institutional/Programmatic Accreditation Workshop
  • Maintaining Accreditation Workshop
  • Evaluator Trainings
  • Program Effectiveness Plan Workshop
