Affiliate Membership


Affiliate Membership in AUPHA is ideal for non-academic entities or academic programs that do not grant a full degree in healthcare management. For example, programs in health IT, health policy, health law, or informatics may wish to take advantage of this linkage to the healthcare management field. Additionally, certificate and associates degree programs are eligible for Affiliate Membership. Programs that offer a full degree in healthcare management are not eligible for this membership category.

Affiliate Membership in AUPHA is also designed to provide an opportunity for those providing non-degree based healthcare management and leadership education to join forces with those in academe to ensure the rigor and quality of the educational continuum.
