The UofL School of Public Health and Information Sciences is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health. The residential MSHA program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME). CAHME is the accrediting body for graduate programs in health management in the United States. Closely aligned with the residential program, the online executive MSHA will be applying for CAHME accreditation in the near future.
