The full accreditation of the College of Public Health is in addition to its 26 program-specific accreditations.
Temple’s College of Public Health this month was awarded full accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health, making it one of two accredited public health schools in the Philadelphia region and one of three in Pennsylvania.
The college’s accreditation is in addition to individual accreditations of its programs, including its master of public health, which has been CEPH-accredited since 1985.
CEPH cited the College of Public Health’s commitment to students; curricular emphasis on fieldwork and practical experience; focus on interprofessional education and research; and integration of public health concepts across clinical academic programs as some of the school’s main strengths.
