Programmatic Accreditation Report
The University of Kansas is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). View HLC Current Status.
A majority of the Medical Center's health professional programs (e.g. medicine, nursing, public health, physical therapy) are externally accredited by an appropriate national professional organization, and such accreditation is often necessary for graduates to be licensed to practice or to pursue employment with certain agencies. For the program, becoming accredited and maintaining accreditation is a mark of excellence due to the rigorous review of the curriculum, faculty credentials and training, and evaluation of program resources.
Note: The Office of Enterprise Analytics maintains updated information regarding the accreditation status of programs at the Medical Center on a continual basis, with a new report generated as needed.
