CHEF University is a mentoring/study group session for ACHE members who are working towards sitting for the ACHE Board of Governor’s Exam and pursuing their FACHE credential.

Starting January 31, 2023, CHEF will offer a 6-week mentoring/study group session for ACHE members. The study sessions will be held virtually for 2.5 hours in length, with approximately 2 hours of content review and 30 minutes of discussion and will cover the following topics: Healthcare Knowledge; Management and Leadership; Law and Regulatory; Healthcare Technology and Information Management; Professionalism and Ethics; Quality and Performance Improvement; Governance and Organizational Structure; Human Resources; Healthcare Finance; and Healthcare Business.

The lectures will be delivered by local experienced healthcare leaders and current Fellows, and participants will have access to course materials post-lecture. Additional Fellows will be present at most sessions to answer ACHE- or CHEF-related questions.

The 6-week exam preparatory session will cost $100. Register Today.
