Strategic Alliances and Partners

The College has developed a number of strategic alliances with universities and other organizations that offer educational programs complementary to the Certified Health Executive (CHE) program. Students enrolled in these programs can take part in a modified CHE program, giving them the opportunity to earn their certification while working on their degree.

The CHE program is also linked to programs offered by other national professional associations, provincial health authorities and health institutes. Recently it has been recognized by the North East Community Care Access Centre as the preferred designation for its health leaders.

If you would like more information on our CHE program alliances or are interested in becoming an alliance please contact our Professional Development Department by e-mail at
