UCSF Center for the Health Professions , the Taskforce on Health Care Workforce Regulation

Jun 1998

With the rapid pace of change in the educational and health care systems today, the ability of health professions education accreditation to respond to the needs of the professions, educational institutions, students and the ultimate consumers of health services has come into question. These documents are a series of independent papers based on the work of the Taskforce on Accreditation. They are intended to be stand alone documents, although taken as a set they provide a comprehensive overview of the history, purpose and future course of the health care education accreditation process.
