What Next? Life in the ACH after Graduation

Internal Opportunities
After one graduates from the FIT program and becomes a faculty member of the ACH, other internal education opportunities include: co-facilitating with FITs at ENRICH or Winter Course, becoming a Guide for a FIT, or joining the FIT committee as a faculty representative (if openings are available).

External Opportunities
Additionally, there are a growing number of external education opportunities for ACH faculty to lead custom, on-site workshops on behalf of the Academy.  To be considered for selection, you must have successfully completed the RCF program or Faculty Development Track. 



ACH Faculty are dedicated to better healthcare through better communication.  Each ACH faculty member has completed the Faculty-in-Training Program or is a founding member of the organization.
