Becoming board certified as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE) demonstrates your competence, credibility and dedication to healthcare management excellence.

Passing the Board of Governors Examination in Healthcare Management (BOG Exam) is the final step to earning the FACHE credential. The BOG Exam is comprehensive, consisting of multiple-choice questions that test 10 core knowledge areas. To do your best on the exam, you need to be thoroughly prepared, and the Middle Tennessee Chapter of ACHE is pleased to offer a review course that will help you.

Developed by ACHE in collaboration with nationally recognized subject matter experts, the BOG Chapter Review Course provides a breadth of information across all 10 knowledge areas, as well as testing strategies, sample questions and a better understanding of the exam's content, structure and scoring.

The Middle Tennessee Chapter has assembled a team of local subject matter experts to present the review sessions. Consider the many benefits of attending this chapter review course:

  • Earn up to 8 hours of ACHE face-to-face education credits upon course completion
  • Focus your preparation into one full day
  • Network with healthcare leaders from your community
  • Save time and eliminate travel expenses by attending a local course
