Scope: GPHEC serves higher education institutions and healthcare organizations throughout the world.
Mission: The council mission is to establish education criteria and assure outcomes that are based on evidence and competency, promote the progressive nature of education and lifelong learning, and ensure the employment of practitioners who are competent and who, by providing quality care, promote positive health outcomes in the populations they serve.
