St. George’s University’s MPH program is one of only six non-U.S. based MPH programs that has been accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).
What does a CEPH Accreditation Mean?
SGU MPH degree program has completed a multi-level review and been found to meet all US-agreed-upon standards developed by public health academics and practitioners.
An SGU CEPH accredited MPH degree provides three distinct benefits:
- Employment opportunities with the US Public Health Service, US military public health jobs, and state and local government jobs that require an MPH degree
- Access to fellowships, e.g., fellowships offered by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH)
- Provides a pathway to sit for the Certified in Public Health (CPH) exam and obtain the CPH credential. Visit http://www.nbphe.org/ for additional information.
Strong, Global Partnerships
Our strong ties to global health organizations are just a few of the dimensions that contribute to the academic experiences that our MPH students receive.
We serve as a World Health Organization Collaborating Center (WHO CC) in Environmental and Occupational Health and a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Regional Collaborating Center (UNFCCC, RCC).
The faculty is encouraged to participate in research collaboration with other public health institutions.
Our relationships with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute of Health (NIH), University of the West Indies, and many others are paramount to our success as a program.
We have service links with Grenada’s Ministries of Health and Agriculture, as well as regional and international agencies, such as the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the World Health Organization.
The DPHPM hosts the Gamma Kappa Chapter of the Delta Omega Honors Society in Public Health.
