The CAHME Outstanding Practice Recognition Program recognizes innovation, promotes sustainable and replicable outstanding practices that lead to excellence in healthcare management education.
About the Award
The CAHME Board of Directors has developed the CAHME Outstanding Practice Recognition Program to identify Outstanding Practices in individual CAHME accredited programs that can be shared with other CAHME accredited programs and candidates for accreditation. The CAHME application process allows programs to self-nominate an exceptional practice or have practices nominated by alumni or administrators. The practice must be linked directly or indirectly to CAHME Criteria for Accreditation. The nominated practices will be reviewed by a small panel and judged to determine if they are worthy of broad dissemination. The CAHME recognition program rewards and recognizes innovation, and promotes sustainable and replicable outstanding practices that lead to excellence in healthcare management education.
Applications are welcomed from all CAHME accredited programs, small or large, new or well-established. In reviewing applications, the Selection Committee will take into account the resources available to each program in terms of funding, staff and volunteers. There is no entry fee to participate in this competition.

The Selection Process
Applicants for the CAHME Outstanding Practice Recognition Program must submit their application electronically. The Selection Committee is an all-volunteer committee selected by CAHME from present or former CAHME Accreditation Council members and present and former Fellows. No member of the CAHME staff will serve as a voting member of the Selection Committee but staff will facilitate the process. All information submitted to the Selection Committee will remain confidential until a final determination has been made.
How to Apply
There will be two submission deadlines each year: March 31 and September 30. This allows the judging panel adequate time to consider all applications.
