Texas State’s master of healthcare administration program has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) since 1992. Because CAHME accreditation requires continual self-evaluation, regular reports and periodic external review, the educational quality of the programs remains current and reflects changes in knowledge and practice.
