The MCW Graduate School has received accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) for graduate level studies leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in biochemistry, biophysics, biostatistics, cell and developmental biology, microbiology and immunology, pharmacology and toxicology, physiology, and public and community health. Additionally, MCW is accredited for studies leading to a Master of Arts degree in bioethics and Master of Science degrees in healthcare technologies management, bioinformatics, epidemiology, and a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree.
The MPH program is also individually accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).
Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) is an independent agency which accredits schools of public health and public health programs offered in settings other than schools of public health.
In 2011, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the accreditation body for all U.S. medical schools, awarded a full, eight-year accreditation to MCW – the longest period of accreditation possible.
