Remaining Accreditation Workshops in 2010 

The following is a list of accreditation workshops being held for the remainder of the year.  As a reminder, for institutions and programs seeking a new (initial) grant of accreditation, and for institutions seeking a renewed grant of accreditation, the Commission mandates that a representative from each campus attend the accreditation workshop prior to submission of the Self-Evaluation Report (SER) and within one year of grant expiration for currently accredited institutions. Other workshops are also scheduled (e.g., evaluator training, program effectiveness plan) and can be found by visiting and click the 2010 Workshop link found on the bottom of the left hand column on the homepage. Space is limited, so register today!

I am pleased to announce the addition of a new staff position at ABHES.  Ms. Patricia Laughlin joined us on April 5, 2010, as an Administrative Assistant.  Trish will work closely with Judy Burke, Office Manager, to ease the administrative work load, including serving as the receptionist, and she will provide additional office support for all staff.   Trish can be reached by e-mail at

Opening Conference Video Posted

We again wish to thank those institutions that provided photos for ABHES to use in its opening conference video, shown at the National Conference for Allied Health Education in January. The video was very well received and exemplifies what ABHES-accredited institutions and programs do best – educate students for careers in health care.  The opening video is now available to view on ABHES’ homepage at  Information on the 2011 conference is coming soon!
