Program Description:

The Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health includes the shared missions of 1) meeting the public health workforce needs for the future and 2) demonstrating how public health approaches can address the health needs of Arkansans via model community programs. Pilot sites for teaching and learning also serve as innovative laboratories for new and creative approaches to old problems. Students learn, with the expert aid of local citizens, schools, hospitals, and faith groups about community-based health improvement. As with other UAMS colleges, the standards of teaching and learning are high and the resources for academic and social life are excellent. College faculty members are engaged in cutting-edge health research in numerous areas of societal concerns and students are welcome as members of most investigative teams. The Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health is proud to be a CEPH (Council on Education for Public Health) accredited school/program. The Council establishes, monitors, and periodically revises the criteria by which it evaluates graduate public health schools and programs. CEPH's accreditation procedures requires that the school undertake a self-evaluation, submit a self study document, and host a team of qualified peer reviewers who validate the self study during an on-site visit to the campus. On July 27, 2007, the national Council on Education for Public Health reaccredited the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health for seven years.
