AUPHA membership will give you access to our many products and services. When asked what they value most highly about AUPHA membership, our members cite the opportunity to meet and network with colleagues who share similar interests. The AUPHA Faculty Networks, Annual Meeting and other conferences make this exchange possible. AUPHA offers publications that promote communication throughout the membership and keep members up to date on advancements in the field. AUPHA offers individual members the opportunity to publish research and papers in the only peer-reviewed journal examining issues relating to healthcare management/administration education.
AUPHA members drive the activities, provide the energy, identify and address issues, as well as deliver educational benefits. AUPHA encourages and recognizes individual involvement on its various committees and in leadership positions within the organization. Active involvement helps the overall industry and provides tremendous interaction across industry segments. One of AUPHA’s greatest strengths is its ability to leverage membership expertise for the benefit of all members.
AUPHA’s Faculty Networks address the ongoing need to collaborate among the faculty to develop new course content and teaching methods. Individual faculty members can not address the many emerging issues alone nor develop comprehensive curricula to address them. AUPHA’s Faculty Networks and Special Interest Groups are central to our mission. They bring together faculty from diverse programs with common interests. They facilitate research and curriculum development and continuously seek new areas of focus for the Association. AUPHA supports the work of these networks by coordinating their activities, providing opportunities to meet, and supporting the Networks’ programs.
