Determine How Ready you are to Become Accredited

Complete the form to the right to open a self-evaluation. This allows you to explore AAHA standards to determine how far your practice is from accreditation. There is no fee. You’ll answer a set of questions that will customize the standards for your practice. A dedicated AAHA accreditation specialist will be assigned to you to answer any of your questions and help you work through the process of self-evaluation.

Become a Pre-Accredited Member

If you’re ready to begin the accreditation process, click “join” below. You’ll answer a set of questions that will customize the standards for your practice and gain access to the list of AAHA standards. On the acknowledgement page, you’ll agree to the terms and conditions of using the standards and related conditions. You can pay the $675 fee online with a credit card (or you can request an invoice). Once the initial fee is paid, your practice officially becomes a pre-accredited practice, and all of the benefits of membership are available to your whole team.
