The College promotes excellence and continual improvement of university training in health service management by providing a national university accreditation program.

The national university accreditation standards have been developed through broad consultation with employers, industry groups, health managers and universities, to ensure that graduates who complete these programs are competent to perform the core tasks they face in employment.

Accreditation provides universities with a framework to build courses of excellence in Health Service Management, and is a valuable tool to encourage continual improvement within their department. Students can also identify accredited university courses as a recognition of quality when choosing a university.
The following universities offer courses in Health Service Management (HSM) or related topics (leadership, etc) that have been accredited by ACHSM. They are clustered by state/territory and in alphabetical order.

Accreditation process

For new accreditations please email accreditation@achsm.org.au with the name of the course/s the university would like to be accredited. The College head office will then contact the university to start the process.

The following documents explain the College’s university accreditation process:

ACHSM Accreditation Program Policy and Manual (for general information and the philosophies and context)

ACHSM Accreditation Program Guidelines for Universities (specific information for clarifying the requirements and the process for accreditation)

ACHSM Accreditation Program Handbook for Surveyors  (specific information for guiding our surveyors in managing the accreditation processes)

As combined resources, these documents streamline the processes and give clarity to the role of the university undertaking the accreditation as well as the role of the College Head Office. This will reduce lag times from request for accreditation to finalising report and notifying the university. It will also reflect the desire to build on the relationships that exist between the College and the university sector. All Accreditations are required to be online.
We have developed a short checklist to help universities prepare for their accreditation. This will be emailed out to the university once contact has been made.
We will be strongly encouraging universities who offer Health Service Management courses which are not currently accredited by ACHSM to join us in an attempt to create a workforce that will meet the needs of the health and aged care industry.

Benefits

Benefits for the accredited university include:
