October 21, 2016

The Master of Public Health Program offered through Western University’s Schulich Interfaculty Program in Public Health has reportedly received accreditation for five years from the Council on Education for Public Health. Western states that it is the first program in the province and the fourth in Canada to receive this accreditation. “This program is unique in its case-based approach to education, and I feel it has strengths that no other program has,” stated MPH candidate Melissa Fernandes. “CEPH’s accreditation gives power to the program in a way that resonates with colleagues and employers.” Amardeep Thind, Director of the Schulich Interfaculty program in Public Health, noted that, “it is a huge pat on the back for Western to have received accreditation so soon after the development of the program.” Western
