CACREP Grants Accreditation to Medaille’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program in Buffalo and Rochester
The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), has granted accreditation to Medaille’s Master of Arts program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) offered at the College’s Buffalo and Rochester campuses.
The national accreditation demonstrates the Medaille CMHC program’s commitment to meeting the highest academic standards, and to preparing its students for successful entry into professional practice. The benefits for students attending Medaille’s accredited counseling program include:
- Recognition that the program has been evaluated and meets or exceeds national standards
- Knowledge that the graduate has met prerequisites for credentialing and is ready for entry into professional service
- Understanding that the focus of the program will be on professional counseling, not psychology, education or other helping professions
The accreditation process involves a rigorous, multi-level review process, followed with a decision by CACREP’s board of directors. The board found that Medaille’s program “substantially meets the requirements for accredited status.” CACREP accreditation is the recognized training standard by the Institute of Medicine and the Veteran’s Administration.
