M.D./M.P.H. There are several pathways for completing the combined Doctor of Medicine (MD) / Master in Public Health (MPH) program. One option is to start year 1 as a full-time MPH student. Those students who complete all of the MPH core courses in Year 1, do the first year of the MD program in Year 2.
M.D./Ph.D. The Doctor of Medicine (MD) / Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) curriculum provides students with a longitudinal integration of basic and clinical sciences, punctuated by a period of rigorous graduate research training. This program is also referred to as the Medical Scientist Training Program.
