Profession Description and Certification Information

Each of the areas in which CAAHEP accredits programs represents a unique health sciences discipline. The CAAHEP accreditation system currently includes 30 health sciences professions. Several of the professions are new to the CAAHEP system and are currently developing Standards and Guidelines and do not currently have programs that are accredited.

CAAHEP has provided an occupational and employment description for each of the 28 health sciences professions currently in the CAAHEP system of accreditation with approved Standards and Guidelines. At the end of each description you will find contact information for certifying bodies (where applicable) and professional organizations.
