VENTURE 17             - Private Education for the Medical Arts and Sciences


Strictly adhered to, and reviewed quarterly by Venture XVII Medical Associates, and The Venture 17 Division of Education, the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools is considered to be the leader in health education accreditation.

For over 40 years, ABHES has been nationally recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a private, non-profit, independent accrediting agency. It has been at the forefront of advancing the quality of health education programs throughout the country.

ABHES enhances the quality of education and training and promotes institutional and programmatic accountability through systematic and consistent program evaluation. Its key is to assure the quality of the programs it accredits, and assist in the improvement of the programs. This quality-determination is accomplished by rigorous and systematic evaluation based on valid standards.

The goals of ABHES focus on three key areas: recognition, resources, and service; all of which it believes are essential and paramount to achieving its mission.
