MPH Accreditation Increases Opportunities for Students

MPH students

The Master of Public Health program received its accreditation for five years from the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). It is the first program in Ontario to receive this accreditation, and only the fourth in Canada. Graduates from the program benefit from the accreditation as it opens up more employment opportunities, considering some employers and NGOs will only hire those who have degrees from a CEPH-accredited program. It also provides them with the opportunity to write exams for the National Board of Public Health Examiners in the United States.
