The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). The MPH program is also individually accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).

The 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 July 2007, MCW's academic programs leading to the MD, PhD, MS, MA and MPH degrees were awarded the maximum 10-year reaccreditation by the HLC. This accreditation is through 2016-2017.

Master of Public Health Program

At its June 17-19, 2010 meeting, the CEPH Board of Councilors accredited the MPH program for the maximum term - seven years. The MPH program's accreditation has, therefore, been extended to July 1, 2017. A site visit by a CEPH Site Visit Team to review our request for reaccreditation took place on April 6-7, 2017. A decision on the reaccreditation request will be taken up at the October meeting of the CEPH Board of Councilors.

Self Study

As part of the reaccreditation process, the MPH program underwent a comprehensive process of self-analysis. The result is the self study document, which describes the program’s attainment of each criterion set forth by CEPH. View the Final Self Study 2017 (PDF)
