MD/Master of Public Health (MPH)

NOTE: Public Health Scholarships exist for Penn medical students interested in this dual degree.

The MD/Master of Public Health (MD/MPH) program is designed for Perelman medical students interested in studying medicine with a special focus on population or community health. The goal of the program is to provide strong interdisciplinary training to individuals with a variety of career interests including: clinical practice, disease prevention, health behavior, health education, research, implementation science, and policy making. The information on this website describes the admissions process, curriculum, advising, and financial policy for the MD/MPH program.

Please note that these guidelines apply only to Perelman medical students. If you are a medical student at another institution, you may apply for the MPH program directly, but the admissions, curriculum and financial information listed here will not apply. Medical students from other institutions will typically need two years of full time study to complete the MPH program, and will be asked to provide verification that their medical school has granted a two year leave of absence to complete the program.

Please note that policies concerning admissions, curriculum, funding and financial aid are subject to change. Additionally, though variations in the curriculum may be possible, any changes will need prior approval and may have financial implications. This website is meant to provide preliminary general overview information only. Students interested in or enrolled in the program should seek personal advising from relevant faculty and staff.
