Important covenants of the Preamble to the Constitution of the World Health Organization (WHO), serve as guiding principles for the development of our University, which were important in guiding the formation of the AUSN Mission, Vision, and Philosophy.
In this current period AUSN offers the following “health related” academic degrees and postgraduate educational certificates programs through the School of Health Sciences.
Accordingly, in order to successfully achieve our goals, AUSN is organized as a non-profit university. AUSN is currently organized through four Schools, including the School of Health Sciences and the School of Medicine. All academic degrees and post-graduate certificate programs are currently offered through the School of Health Sciences, with collaboration with the School of Indigenous Peoples and Global Studies, and the School of Sustainability Science and Knowledge Traditions.
The programs licensed since April 2014 include the following:
Master of Public Health (MPH) (emphasis in Healthcare Management)
Master of Bioethics and Global Public Health (MBGPH)
Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA)
Master of Business Administration (MBA) (emphasis in Healthcare Management)
Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health
Postgraduate Certificate in Bioethics and Global Public Health
Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration
Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration
Postgraduate Certificate in Community and Peace
The School of Medicine is in development until appropriate accreditation is achieved. The reason for regulatory required division of the School of Health Sciences and School of Medicine is that in order to obtain “regional accreditation,” AUSN must “operate” as a University for some period before being able to offer a M.D. degree. It is important to note that the AMA-LCME does not permit a school to grant MD degrees unless and until such school is approved by the AMA-LCME. Accordingly, AUSN must “operate” as a university so as to satisfy the regional accreditation agency’s “operational” requirement – and then apply for consideration and approval by the AMA-LCME.
When the School of Medicine is accredited to be able to offer M.D. degrees AUSN will review the range of degrees that is offered, and the relationships of the School of Health Sciences, School of Medicine, and all other Schools, to ensure the optimal relationships between the teaching branches of the University, the research Institutes, and meeting the Mission of AUSN to serve the glocal community (global and local communities around the world).
