Distinguished Academicians, Managers, Colleagues and Students,
Association of Health Sciences Education Programs Evaluation and Accreditation, accreditation for health sciences education programs are aimed at evaluating and making information work for the improvement of education and health sciences in Turkey and the upgrading of quality. In this context, The 1st International Health Sciences Education Programs Evaluation and Accreditation Congress will be held between 17 – 19 October 2020 in Ankara in order to share new developments in health sciences education and developments related to accreditation in higher education in our country, to raise awareness about quality assurance and to spread the quality culture.
The congress has arisen from a requirement arising from the applications, questions and demands made from the field to our association. In addition to the problems experienced in health sciences education, the program is planned to discuss the difficulties observed in the accreditation process and current developments in education. In determining the topics of the congress, priority was given to good practices in health sciences undergraduate education, areas to be improved, quality and quality assurance in education. In addition, we have planned sessions to guide the work of undergraduate programs that want to be accredited and to answer questions about the accreditation process.
Organized to combine knowledge and experience to improve health sciences education, this congress will enrich your participation and contribute to the updating of accreditation standards in the field. We believe that strengthening health sciences education will also be an important meeting for us to learn and share new information. We are waiting for your participation and contributions to the congress to be held in Ankara on behalf of the organizing committee.
