Health Education Accreditation
Health Education Accreditation is a quality improvement process that supports health education programs, preparing graduates to deliver safe and effective care at entry to practice.
In 2017, Accreditation Canada was selected by a group of health professions within Canada to provide accreditation services for professional, entry to practice, education programs. The program involves a six-stage accreditation process conducted over a six-year cycle.
The health professions currently participating in the program include:
- Cardiology technology
- Clinical genetics technology
- Clinical perfusion
- Diagnostic cytology
- Diagnostic medical sonography
- Magnetic resonance
- Medical laboratory assistant
- Medical laboratory technology
- Nuclear medicine
- Physician assistant
- Radiation therapy
- Radiological technology
- Respiratory therapy
The third-party complaint process has been established in the interest of:
- maintaining the integrity and credibility of the accreditation process;
- ensuring a fair and open process for stakeholders to identify concerns and questions regarding an educational program’s compliance with accreditation standards/requirements;
- providing a mechanism for accountability of the accrediting body to the public.
