Dual Degree Program
Students enrolling in either the osteopathic medicine or podiatric medicine programs may be eligible for a dual-degree option leading to a Master of Public Health, Master of Health Care Administration, Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences, Master of Science in Anatomy or Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences. Students enrolling in the physical therapy program may be eligible for a dual-degree option leading to a Master of Public Health or a Master of Health Care Administration.
This option enables students to combine their clinical knowledge and practice with expertise gained in the master’s or Ph.D. degree program, helping their patients and enhancing their professional options and career. All of the course work in the Master of Public Health program and the Master of Health Care Administration program can be completed online.
Students interested in pursuing both MHA and MPH degrees must apply separately to each program. It is recommended that students complete 6-9 credits in one program prior to applying to a concurrent degree program.
