Public Health Medicine MD/MPH

Understanding public health principles is increasingly important for physicians today. Part of the Public Health Practice major, the Public Health Medicine MD/MPH dual degree program gives medical students an opportunity to earn a public health degree and increase their knowledge of population-based science.

This program will prepare you to:

  • Serve as a leader and practitioner in the application of public health principles
  • Apply a scientific basis to current societal problems and concerns
  • Demonstrate an understanding of cultural and environmental factors that affect patients

The MPH Public Health Medicine program is designed for students who are presently enrolled in a medical school. If you are a practicing physician, please consider the Executive Program in Public Health Practice.
