The American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) offers its prestigious FACHE credential, signifying board certification in healthcare management. One of the requirements to earn, and maintain, the Fellow credential is to demonstrate 36 hours of continuing education credit. While 12 hours of this credit must be ACHE Face-to-Face (F2F) Credit, the remaining 24 hours can be Qualified Education Credit (QEC).
We will be offering both ACHE Face-to-Face (F2F) Education credits and ACHE-approved Qualified Education Credits (QEC) throughout 2022.
Non-members of ACHE may attend but must create a free profile with ACHE to complete registration and only to be for the purpose of the event.
The forum will feature healthcare leaders that will speak about healthcare leadership career development resources, opportunities e.g. administrative fellowships, executive development programs, key certifications etc., leadership skills, and actionable professional insights after which a robust Q & A portion will take place. Participants will also get to attend a job fair and networking session before the program begins.
Leadership and leading others is more of an art than science especially in healthcare. At times, the new healthcare executive may be in a leadership position for the first time or may have little direct experience compared to those who they are managing. Conversely, leading other generations other than one's own requires skills that can be honed. The panelists will present strategies for successfully navigating these leadership challenges and insight into how to avoid common management mistakes. Updated flyer is attached.

It is incumbent on healthcare organizations and their leaders to both understand and embrace the needs of diverse populations.
