Beginning October 18, the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) of Skokie, Illinois, encourages experienced and currently practicing healthcare professionals to apply to become a AAAHC surveyor, according to a release. Qualified candidates include healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses and administrators, all of whom ideally have direct AAAHC accreditation experience. The organization also seeks professionals with health plan and Life Safety Code experience. Individuals who are accepted into the program will attend blended learning sessions, held online and in person, and will support the AAAHC mission of improving healthcare quality throughout the 1,095 days of the accreditation cycle.

“Using their experience in healthcare with a collaborative approach to advance the standard of care, surveyors provide peer-reviews for ambulatory organizations, which is fundamental to our 1095 Strong, quality every day philosophy,” said AAAHC Board Chair Timothy Peterson, MD, in the release. “... This challenging but important role works to keep patients safe in the ambulatory setting through detailed and complex accreditation surveys.”

Within 45 days of application receipt, AAAHC will notify qualified candidates of next steps, including a virtual interview, according to the release. Candidates who accept job offers are required to participate in a two-day, in-person training session scheduled in the first quarter of 2022.

“Our surveyor training program integrates a hands-on approach to drive consistent standards interpretation, survey process management and educational consultation that results in a positive learning experience for the surveyed facility that promotes improved patient care,” said Noel Adachi, president and chief executive officer of AAAHC, in the release.

AAAHC requires that surveyors receive the COVID-19 vaccine and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended booster shots. See the official job description for more details and to apply.
