Canada's First Accredited School of Public Health

In October 2012, the University of Alberta’s School of Public Health was granted accreditation by the U.S. Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). This makes the School the first accredited school of public health in Canada, the second outside of the U.S. and the 50th in the world.

CEPH is sponsored by the American Public Health Association and the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health in the United States.
