The Graduate Programs in Public Health are located within the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics (PMB), F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine, at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS).
The mission of the PMB Graduate Programs in Public Health is to enhance and protect the health of the Uniformed Services' community and its global health mission by producing knowledgeable and highly skilled public health professionals who promote evidence-based policy making, research, and service initiatives that support the global missions of the US Government.
The Department of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics received its latest re-accreditation of its Graduate Programs by Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) in 2006. A Self Study was prepared, a Site Visit was conducted on November 17-18, 2005, and a resulting Site Visit Report was prepared by the CEPH. The Department prepared a Response to the Site Visit Report on June 26, 2006; the Department was awarded the maximum seven-year re-accreditation, extending its accreditation until July 1, 2013. As part of the continuing accreditation requirements, the Department has prepared Annual Reports for each academic year since the 2006 re-accreditation, and has recently completed a new 2013 Self-Study in preparation of an anticipated April, 2013 re-accreditation site visit. As part of the ongoing re-accreditation process, CEPH requires that interested and affected parties, including students, alumni, faculty, and the practice community be offered the opportunity to provide written input to the CEPH site visit team. If you would like to submit written input to the site visit team, please send it to the following address:
