Doctor of Medicine/Master of Public Health Degree

Doctor of Medicine

The School of Community Health Sciences and the University of Nevada School of Medicine (UNSOM) offer students the opportunity to pursue dual MD/MPH degrees.

The dual program integrates the two areas of study and allows for 10 credit hours to count toward both degrees. MD/MPH students complete the training for the MPH degree usually between their third and fourth years of medical school.

Program areas include:

  • Epidemiology
  • Social and behavioral health

Students who select this program will be prepared for career tracks in prevention, research, and population-based community health. Physicians with this combined degree often work in non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government, or international health agencies to address health policy and advocacy. Selected elective credits in the medical students fourth year will count jointly towards the two degrees. Many positions in public health, occupational, aerospace and environmental agencies and companies prefer this degree combination for physicians in many of their leadership positions. This degree combination also prepares practicing physicians to meet the social, behavioral and environmental issues that influence health and the health practices of their patients and communities.
