CAAHEP Webinar: "The CAAHEP Site Visit: What to Expect, How to Prepare"

 | 11/18/2019
Date: December 3, 2019; 1:00 PM Eastern

Hosting a site visit can be scary if you’ve not experienced one before. The philosophy of CAAHEP site visits is to function in a consultative approach with transparency. Accreditation site visits are an opportunity to obtain in-depth information concerning all administrative and educational aspects of the program. Site visits permit a team of peers to assess a program's compliance with the CAAHEP accreditation Standards. The site visit verifies and supplements the information contained in the comprehensive self-study report completed by the program. Information provided in the self-study report is confirmed, documentation is reviewed, interviews are conducted, and the program is observed by the site visit team.

This webinar will:
• Explain the purpose of an accreditation visit
• Describe the philosophy of a CAAHEP accreditation site visit
• Identify documents needed for the site visit
• Define methods for organizing necessary documents for the site visit
• Recommend options for preparing faculty for the site visit

Cost $29.00 USD
