MD/MPH Program

Students enrolled in the Dual MD/MPH option are able to take MPH coursework during summer vacations, a leave of absence between the second and third year of medical school, and distance education.

MPH degree requirements for medical students are identical to the requirements of other MPH students. Medical students should be able to complete requirements for both degrees in five years.

A leave of absence to pursue the MPH degree will be granted to medical students accepted into the MPH program who have completed Step I of the USMLE and are in good standing in medical school.  For more information, visit the Department of Public Health website (
