The Accreditation Agency in Health and Social Sciences (AHPGS) is an interdisciplinary and multiprofessional organization which concentrates on the accreditation of Bachelor/Master programs, as well as internal quality control and assurance systems, at universities and other institutions of higher education. The AHPGS works with special competence in the fields of health and social sciences, as well as in other adjacent and related disciplines. We are centered in Germany but also carry out international accreditation procedures, both within and outside of the EU, on a regular basis.

AHPGS recognized by WFME
The World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) granted AHPGS recognition as an “agency with recognition status“on October 2, 2023 for a period of 10 years.
WFME recognition status of an institution means that the quality of medical education at its accredited universities meets an appropriate and rigorous standard.

So far, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin in Germany and the Medical University of Vienna in Austria have successfully implemented a corresponding procedure with the AHPGS.

AHPGS is currently in the process of renewing its membership with ENQA and registration with EQAR. The application can be found here.
