Welcome to the ATP Health Sector Special Interest Group

Aims and Objectives


The objectives of the Health Sector SIG include bringing together the health care sector with the testing industry in order to advance assessment and testing in health care through innovation, best practice, networking, and the exchange of information and expertise. Specifically, within the context of the ATP program, the SIG will facilitate dialogue on key issues and challenges in testing for education, licensure, and workforce recruitment in the health sector.

Strategies and Approach

The Health Sector SIG has identified a number of strategies to achieve its purposes, including:

  • serving as a voice for health-related issues in testing and assessment;
  • encouraging the exchange of information and expertise relevant to the health sector by encouraging networking at ATP conferences and events;
  • making presentations and contributions to ATP programs; and 
  • facilitating the participation of individuals and organizations within health-related industries who are not currently members of the ATP.

How to Join

The Health Sector Special Interest Group (SIG) is excited to welcome current ATP members with an interest in facilitating dialog on key issues and challenges in testing for education, licensure, and workforce recruitment in the health sector.
