Institutional Accreditation Criteria
APHEA's Institutional Accreditation focuses up on the institution's ability to provide a solid structure or foundation for the public health academic, research and service output. The criteria/standards and sub-criteria are intended to maintain and improve the quality of public health educational institutions. They are not intended to dictate specific processes but rather to provide a framework within which each institution will be evaluated.
Each criterion is then broken down into a number of sub-criteria, all of which are to be addressed within the Self-Evaluation Report and accompanied by required documentation or other sources of information. Finally, where necessary, under the sub criteria there are bulleted checkpoints, which provide a basis for the arguments and conclusions with respect to each criterion.
Criterion I: Governance and Organisation of the Institution
Criterion II: Aims and Objectives of the Public Health Institution and its programmes.
Criterion III: Programmes
Criterion IV: Students and Graduates
Criterion V: Human Resources and Staffing
Criterion VI: Supportive Services, Budgeting and Facilities
Criterion VII: Internal Quality Management
