Preparing the next generation of public health leaders.
Welcome to the University of Memphis School of Public Health, making a world of difference.
As population increases and diseases evolve, the need for leadership in health institutions also grows. The University of Memphis School of Public Health (SPH) is preparing the next generation of leaders to address public health concerns and is focused on translating research into practice. Our mission is global, but our work begins in our own community. We actively work with officials and leaders in the community to take on pressing issues like HIV/AIDS, childhood obesity prevention, asthma, heart disease, tobacco use and cessation, sickle cell disease, and social inequities that adversely affect health. Our students and faculty are active participants in public health research and practice. We not only envision change for our world, but also making a difference in our community every day.
SPH has completed the initial review process and is under consideration for accreditation by the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH). SPH is currently an associate member of the Association of Schools and Programs in Public Health (ASPPH). The Master of Health Administration (MHA) program is one of 83 programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) and the only accredited program in Tennessee.
