One of the key goals of the Chicago Health Executives Forum (CHEF), the metropolitan Chicago local chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), is to provide educational and mentoring opportunities for healthcare executives, particularly those interested in pursuing Fellow status in ACHE. Of CHEF’s nearly 1,800 members, over 500 are eligible to advance to Fellow.  By becoming board certified in healthcare management as an ACHE Fellow (FACHE), you’ll have the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed and move forward in your healthcare career.   To find out if you are eligible to advance to Fellow, please go to http://www.ache.org/mbership/credentialing/steps.cfm

Starting January 30, 2018, CHEF will offer a 6-week mentoring/study group session for ACHE members who are working on pursuing their FACHE credential.  The study sessions will be 3 hours in length, with approximately 2.5 hours of content review and 30 minutes of discussion. The lectures will be delivered by local experienced healthcare leaders and current Fellows.  Additional Fellows will be present at most sessions to answer ACHE- or CHEF-related questions.  CHEF has applied for Category II credits for each of these lectures, which will be confirmed as soon as the schedule of speakers is finalized.

The 6-week exam preparatory session will cost $100. Registration is now available via www.chefchicago.org. Sessions will start on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 and end Tuesday, March 13th.  There will be no class on Tuesday, February 20th due to CHEF Annual Meeting.
