Reminder: FACHE Membership Tenure Requirement Change

We are grateful so many talented and dedicated leaders choose the FACHE® credential to demonstrate their commitment to healthcare management excellence.

Effective Jan. 1, the membership tenure requirement for initial Fellow advancement has been adjusted from three years to one year. We remain confident the change will make Fellow status possible for more of our Members who meet the requirements and wish to advance to this important leadership level. The other requirements for Members to obtain the FACHE credential remain the same.

If you have any questions about the FACHE requirements, the deadline extensions or the process in general, please reach out to our Customer Service Center at or (312) 424-9400, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Central time.
