Date:10/21/2011

TIMONIUM, Md., Oct 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Institute of Health Sciences has received institutional accreditation for their Maryland Campus from the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools during the their July, 2011 meeting.

ABHES is recognized by the United States Secretary of Education for the accreditation of private, postsecondary institutions in the United States offering predominantly allied health education programs and the programmatic accreditation of medical assistant, medical laboratory technician and surgical technology programs leading to a certificate, diploma, Associate of Applied Science, Associate of Occupational Science, Academic Associate degree, or Baccalaureate degree, including those offered via distance education.

As a recognized accrediting agency by the U.S. Secretary of Education, ABHES is deemed to be a reliable authority concerning the quality of education or training offered by the institutions of higher education or higher education programs it accredits. Accreditation by ABHES may be used to establish eligibility to participate in Title IV programs.

The Electroneurodiagnostic technology and Polysomnography programs at IHSare accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), upon recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation on Accreditation for Education in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology. CAAHEP is the largest programmatic accreditor in the health sciences field. In collaboration with its Committees on Accreditation, CAAHEP reviews and accredits over 2000 educational programs in twenty (20) health science occupations.

As a graduate of a CoA-END, CAAHEP accredited Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist Program; the student will be eligible to take the R.EEG.T national examination through the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET). In addition, they are eligible to take the Board of Registered Polysomnography Technologists (BRPT) national exams in sleep medicine by completing the add-on components within the END Technology Program

"Employment opportunities for mid-level health providers are expected to grow faster than the average for all other occupations", said Richard Trader PA-C FCCM, Director of IHS. "The US Department of Labor predicts an increase of 21% - 35% growth over the next ten years." he continued. "The rapidly growing older population will be one reason for this growth, since older people tend to have more central nervous system problems associated with strokes and Alzheimer's disease. Technology will also help spur demand in this sector because newly trained individuals will be needed to operate the latest high-tech equipment."
