Accreditation

CEPH AccreditedThe Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health is proud to be a CEPH (Council on Education for Public Health) accredited school/program. The Council establishes, monitors, and periodically revises the criteria by which it evaluates graduate public health schools and programs. CEPH’s accreditation procedures requires that the school undertake a self-evaluation, submit a self study document, and host a team of qualified peer reviewers who validate the self study during an on-site visit to the campus. On July 27, 2007, the national Council on Education for Public Health reaccredited the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health for seven years.
