Note on Health and Health-Related Programs
Submissions to AACHHR must be made under the signature of the Provost and Vice-President Academic. Please contact the Executive Director, Provost Office, 902-494-2591 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Program submissions of health and health-related program proposals to the MPHEC must be accompanied by a letter from the AACHHR, indicating their support of the proposed program. The MPHEC’s program assessment criteria differ from those of AACHHR; as a result, AACHHR support does not guarantee MPHEC approval.
More information about AACHHR information requirements, including relevant contact information, can be found here. Notwithstanding the AACHHR’s information requirements, all health and health-related proposals submitted to the MPHEC must be drafted using the MPHEC Information Requirements for new, modified, or terminated programs.
