A Race/Ethnic Comparison of Career Attainments in Healthcare Management: 2008
Summary (PDF) or Complete Report (PDF)
A 1992 joint study by ACHE and the National Association
of Health Services Executives (NAHSE), whose membership is predominantly black,
compared the career attainments of their members. Follow-up studies were conducted in
1997 and 2002. The study groups were broadened to include Hispanic and Asian
healthcare executives. Sponsorship was correspondingly enlarged to include the Institute
for Diversity in Health Management, the National Forum for Latino Healthcare
Executives and the Asian Health Care Leaders Association. The central objective of this
fourth cross-sectional study is to determine if the racial/ethnic disparities in healthcare
management careers have narrowed.
