Title:New accreditation for EM-CQSL program

The Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) Board of Directors approved the initial accreditation of Georgetown University’s Executive Master’s in Clinical Quality, Safety, and Leadership (EM-CQSL) for a three-year term.

“The goal of our program is to create future leaders in the quality and safety field to improve health care for patients, families, and providers,” says Carole Hemmelgarn, EM-CQSL director. The EM-CQSL is a part of the Biomedical Graduate Education program at Georgetown University Medical Center. “This accreditation is representative of the outstanding faculty at Georgetown University, and their excellence in teaching a current and real-world curriculum that prepares graduates to be sought-after leaders in their field.”

The EM-CQSL, developed by Georgetown University Medical Center in collaboration with MedStar Health, is an online program representing the environment that health care providers and patients encounter every day. The program immerses learners in advanced theory and concepts of health care quality, safety science, and organizational leadership using a unique interprofessional learning format.

“CAHME’s mission is to advance the quality of health care management education globally. CAHME-accredited programs have successfully navigated a thorough and careful accreditation process measured by experts in the field,” said Anthony Stanowski, president and CEO of CAHME.
