Accreditation

Rutgers Student Health (RSH) is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).  AAAHC accreditation means that we participate in ongoing self-evaluation, peer review, and education to continuously improve our care and services.  RSH/NB also commits to a thorough on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves healthcare professionals, at least every three years.  (AAAHC is a nationally recognized accrediting body; visit their website)
