MPH/Doctor of Medicine
The MD/MPH dual degree program is designed to train physicians with the knowledge and skills needed to recognize, analyze and address health problems at a population-level. Students learn to identify the social, economic, environmental and cultural determinants of health, and they prepare to apply evidence-based approaches to disease prevention, health promotion and health policy.
Available exclusively to current Washington University medical students, students will earn an MPH with one additional year of study.
Washington University medical students wishing to add the MPH must apply through SOPHAS – the centralized application service for public health. Select the MPH/MD program designation under Washington University in St. Louis – Brown School Public Health Programs within the SOPHAS portal.
