Public Health MPH Dual Degree Programs
Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health offers MPH dual graduate degree programs in partnership with the Drexel College of Medicine and the Thomas R. Kline School of Law.
Joint MPH degree programs allow highly motivated students to study public health in a deeply integrated manner while earning two degrees in less time with less cost than it would take to complete each program on its own.
Applicants seeking admission to dual-degree studies must meet the admission criteria at both schools. Prospective students may apply for the dual program before they begin school or during their first year of the program.
Read more below about how to become a public health leader through one of Dornsife’s public health MPH dual degree graduate programs.
Dornsife's combined bachelor's and master's degree programs are listed separately on the Accelerated Degree Programs (4+1) page.
Doctor of Medicine and Master of Public Health (MD/MPH)
The MD/MPH dual degree program trains students to be physicians who understand population health issues from both local and global perspectives.
The program, which is built on a foundation of health and human rights, provides interdisciplinary training in clinical medicine and population health sciences.
MD/MPH students generally complete both degrees in five years.
Juris Doctorate and Master of Public Health (JD/MPH)
The JD/MPH is a three-year graduate program that focuses on the interplay between law, policy, health management, and public health.
Students study the legal aspects of public health such as health system structure, health care finance and health care policy, while also gaining knowledge of the human aspects of public health, including health disparities, patient rights, and patient safety.
Both degrees are awarded simultaneously.
