The Master of Public Health (MPH) in Healthcare Management degree program at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health has joined four other MPH programs in the country to receive a top accreditation.
UTHealth's MPH degree program received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation Healthcare Management Education (CAHME), which is the only organization recognized to grant accreditation for such programs, according to a university press release. The program launched in 2010.
“CAHME accreditation is a validation that we are successfully equipping our students to become leaders in healthcare management,” Health Lee Revere, associate professor in the Department of Management, Policy and Community Health and director of the George McMillan Fleming Center for Healthcare Management at UTHealth School of Public, said in the release. “Students who select CAHME-accredited programs know they will have access to high quality content, great teaching and a network of healthcare professionals who will help them secure jobs in their field.”
The accreditation process included a three-year voluntary peer-review process involving self-study and evaluation as well as site visits.
“Looking forward, we’ll build on our dual accreditation to continue to attract the best and brightest students and tap into our active network of healthcare professionals in the Texas Medical Center to offer new opportunities for learning, leadership and fellowships,” Revere said in the release.
