The Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) serves the public by promoting, evaluating, and improving the quality of graduate healthcare management education in the United States and Canada. CAHME is an interdisciplinary group of educational, professional, clinical, and other health sector organizations devoted to quality improvement of education for healthcare management and administration professionals. Additionally, CAHME accreditation establishes the standard of measurement of graduate healthcare management education for the world community.
Each year, CAHME recognizes excellence in graduate healthcare management education with CAHME- accredited programs and in partnership with leading healthcare organizations. These valued programs are recognized for driving innovation, improving the student experience, and expanding the presence of graduate healthcare management education. Now in its second year, the CAHME/Canon Solutions America Award for Sustainability in Healthcare Management Education and Practice focuses on recognizing universities that are committed to pushing public health forward through dynamic and diverse sustainability-driven activities with proven results.
"We are so grateful for Canon's support of this award, as it recognizes programs that are advancing the quality of graduate healthcare management education," said Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE, President and CEO of CAHME. "Canon is an important partner in this work."

Canon Solutions America congratulates The University of Scranton on this great achievement and we look forward to their program pushing personal and professional growth for its students while embracing diversity in the health education community."
Helping secure The University of Scranton's recognition was its program's mission to provide local, regional, and international students a comprehensive and interdisciplinary set of core competencies and values for health administration jobs in a variety of healthcare organizations. Additionally, the program contributes scholarship to its disciplines, especially applied research, publications, and presentations.
The University of Scranton, additional award winners, and CAHME's corporate sponsors are being recognized in an upcoming issue of Modern Healthcare and will also be honored at the 2018 CAHME Awards Luncheon to be held on Sunday, March 25 during the ACHE Congress in Chicago, IL.
