School of Medicine Admissions

Four Year MD / MPH Program


Summary of Program

The MD/MPH dual degree is offered by UT Health San Antonio and UTHealth School of Public Health. The MD/MPH is designed to prepare students to integrate medical and public health skills as practitioners and researchers. By combining MD training with an MPH education, students are better prepared to treat individuals and to address health issues in communities. The MD/MPH program is perfect for students interested in global health, community health, clinical research, infectious disease, health promotion, public policy or administration, environmental medicine and preventative medicine.

 

Benefits

  • 12 shared credit hours from the School of Medicine (SOM) curriculum towards your 45-hour MPH degree at no additional cost.
  • Coursework available online and in person at the San Antonio School of Public Health campus just one mile from the SOM.
  • Both degrees can be completed in 4 years, saving time and money.
  • Flexibility and customization in the program allows students to combine traditional MD preparation with the MPH practicum requirement.
