Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA)


AUPHA is a global network of colleges, universities, faculty, individuals and organizations dedicated to the improvement of healthcare delivery through excellence in healthcare management and policy education. Its mission is to foster excellence and drive innovation in health management and policy education, and promote the value of university-based management education for leadership roles in the health sector. AUPHA also serves as a resource center for prospective students in health administration.

AUPHA's membership includes the premier baccalaureate, master's and doctoral degree programs in health administration education in the United States, Canada, and around the world. Its faculty and individual members represent more than 400 colleges and universities. If you are a CAHME accredited Program, or a Program seeking CAHME accreditation, we encourage you to also learn more about AUPHA and get involved with AUPHA as a member organization to take advantage of their learning and networking opportunities.

The association provides forums for discussion where leaders from the field can gather to share information on educational methods and research. The association continues to serve as an effective advocate for the health administration education community before various legislative and executive bodies. Most importantly, AUPHA continues to focus on providing its members with the tools, research, venues, support, and forums that enable each program, as well as healthcare administration education as a whole, to evolve and thrive in a constantly changing industry.
