The Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health – Indianapolis (IUPUI) became the first U.S. school to receive full accreditation by the Agency for Public Health Accreditation (APHEA).
“APHEA accreditation is a significant step in elevating the level of global opportunities we offer our students, staff and faculty,” said Dr. Paul Halverson, founding dean and professor at the Fairbanks School of Public Health. “Dr. Sue Babich, our associate dean for global health, has worked tirelessly to establish the school as a global health leader. She has developed a robust portfolio of global partnerships and activities that set us apart.”
The accreditation process was led by Dr. Sue Babich and Associate Dean for Education Dr. Carole Kacius. The Fairbanks School of Public Health fulfilled a curriculum validation and performed a self-evaluation before participating in a site visit.
“Accreditation by APHEA is very important to us. It underscores our deep commitment to international peer review and improvement of public health education around the world,” said Dr. Sue Babich.
APHEA represents the leading associations of public health in the European Region and is committed to assuring and improving the quality of educational activities throughout the European Region and the world. Accreditation by APHEA is valid for six years.Tags: Friday Letter Submission, Publish on February 07
