The Committee on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Education Programs, a part of the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, was established in 2015 and has unique program standards and an application process for programs interested in accreditation. This interactive workshop will not only further explore evidence-based benefits to the accreditation process, but also provide perspectives from current accredited programs, ‘how to’ tips on how to succeed in the accreditation application process and engage participants in ‘world café’ style discussion tables regarding key accreditation elements: drafting self-study, preparing for site visit, and common concerns and questions.
- List three benefits of accrediting health professional training programs and those specific to AT and rehabilitation engineering
- Describe three recommendations to preparing successful accreditation applications
- Describe the accreditation process by explaining each of the key accreditation elements: drafting self-study, preparing for site visit, common concerns and questions
