Combined M.D./M.P.H. Degree
The Doctor of Medicine/Master of Public Health dual degree is a collaborative program between UT Southwestern Medical Center and the UTHealth School of Public Health (UTSPH).
The M.D./M.P.H. Program prepares students to integrate medical and public health skills in their professional lives as practitioners and researchers.
Both degree programs are independently accredited through the respective accreditation bodies and are approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The integrated dual degree program satisfies the requirements of both the M.D. and M.P.H. degrees.
The M.P.H. degree requires that students attain skills and knowledge in core public health disciplines of biostatistics, environmental and occupational health sciences, epidemiology and disease control, health promotion and behavioral sciences, and management, policy, and community health.
All public health coursework is completed at the UTHealth School of Public Health Dallas Campus, which is housed on the seventh and eighths floors of the UT Southwestern School of Health Professions Building.
