A Brief Overview of Becoming an ABHES Distance Education Evaluator


Helping international medical students gain admission into residency programs, AmeriClerkships Medical Society has operated since 2007. AmeriClerkships Medical Society was founded by Dr. Pedram Mizani, a distance education evaluator for the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).

ABHES relies on the volunteerism of qualified educators and practitioners to aid in the accreditation process. Evaluators take on the responsibility of visiting one to four sites annually. Specifically, distance education evaluators determine if an institution utilizes appropriate methods to monitor academic progress, upholds a schedule that allows for timely distribution of coursework, offers quality curriculums that match the educational standards of a brick and mortar institution, and provides technological support that ensures students achieve academic success. Evaluators are also responsible for assessing admission processes and faculty training.

To be considered for the role of a distance education evaluator, a person must have two years of practical or teaching expertise in online learning or curriculum development. Comparable years of experience in evaluation of distance education design and delivery and online instruction also apply. Eligible parties must complete the ABHES evaluator training and its distance education specialist training module. To learn more about becoming an evaluator, visit http://www.abhes.org.
