Accreditation & Awards

AAAHC Logo

The Campus Health Service at The University of Arizona is the first fully accredited college health service in the nation. We were initially accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) in 1978 and have been accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) since 1981. We have successfully completed our 12th consecutive re-accreditation survey which will stand until December 31, 2017.

This every three-year accreditation process begins with the completion of a comprehensive application and is supported during the intervening period by the use of the AAAHC Handbook and other quality improvement tools. The on-site AAAHC accreditation survey team rigorously compares the Campus Health Service level of compliance with nationally recognized standards of practice, which is then documented through a written report and an award of full accreditation.
