Striving for Excellence as a Health Care Educator?
HCEA is currently exploring the feasibility of a national certification for health care educators. To that end, we have begun developing a competency framework. Conversations continue with recognized accrediting organizations to establish this national certification program in the coming year. HCEA will post new information as it becomes available.

HCEA Good Read
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese is the saga of co-joined twin brothers, Marion and Shiva Stone, born in Ethiopia, orphaned by their mother's death during birth, and forsaken by their father. The story recounts an unforgettable journey into Marion's remarkable life as a physician in New York, while spinning a tale about the power, intimacy, and the curious beauty of healing others.
