Specialty Groups — Federal Healthcare Administrators

American College of Federal Healthcare Administrators (ACFHA)

Formerly known as the Federal Sector, this specialty group of American Academy of Medical Administrators changed its name to the American College of Federal Healthcare Administrators (ACFHA) in 2004 to more accurately describe the healthcare responsibilities of its members.

ACFHA serves healthcare leaders in the Uniformed Services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service) — active duty, reserve and retired and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We provide the opportunity to participate in the development of the field of healthcare management related to Federal leadership.
