Coordinated Doctor of Medicine / Master of Public Health Program
Students may choose between two program formats: a four-year program or a five-year program.
- The four-year program requires students to complete MPH coursework while also completing medical school coursework. Additionally, students in the four-year program may begin taking courses the summer before they begin medical school.
- The five-year program requires students to take a one-year leave of absence from medical school to concentrate on MPH coursework.
Students may complete the MPH degree program totally online, in class, or through a mix of online and in class experiences.
