Dual Degree Programs

Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health offers dual degree programs in partnership with the Drexel College of Medicine and the Thomas R. Kline School of Law.

Joint 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.

Read more about how to become a public health leader through one of Dornsife’s public health dual degree programs:

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.

Dual degrees from Dornsife expand career opportunities and provide a broad understanding of public health and health care systems in the United States. You will gain the experience and training necessary to solve today's public health challenges.

A dual degree may be the right fit if you would like to confront public health issues as:

  • A physician with strong interdisciplinary training in patient health issues like prevention, hygiene, education, and policy making with an MD/MPH
  • An attorney who understands the law as well as the concerns of patients, providers, regulators, and other stakeholders with a JD/MPH
