APTR is the professional organization for individuals and institutions advancing the education of physicians and other health professionals in prevention and population health.
Since 1942, APTR (formerly Association of Teachers of Preventive Medicine) has united faculty committed to preventive medicine and population health education from across the health professions to redefine how we educate the health professions workforce and to improve the Nation's health.
The APTR Council of Graduate Programs in Public Health provides a forum for accredited and emerging graduate programs across the U.S. that grant public health degrees.

Annual Census of Graduate Programs in Public Health
its Council of Graduate Programs in Public Health is
conducting its annual online survey of all graduate programs in the United States that
grant MPH and related degrees. This Census of Graduate Programs in Public
Health is supported by a Cooperative Agreement with the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) and seeks to inform the public health community
about MPH Program institutions, curriculum, and students.
The Census provides APTR and other academic public health stakeholders with
the necessary resources to advocate for public health funding, strengthen the support for
programs, and highlight the unique benefits and distribution of graduate
programs. Profiles of graduate programs are currently posted in the Directory of Programs. While all graduate programs
in public health have a searchable profile on the APTR website, only members of
the APTR Council of Graduate Programs in Public Health can
view detailed program profiles and have the general public,
including prospective students, view detailed information about
Program Directors regardless of APTR membership status are
invited to update their Program Profiles now through May 10, 2013. All
program directors who fully update their program Profile by the May 10 deadline
will receive a report and PowerPoint presentation summarizing the findings.
