M.D./M.P.H. Program

Doctor of Medicine and Master of Public Health

Advocates. Educators. Researchers. Doctors.

The MD/MPH dual degree is offered by UT Health San Antonio Long School of Medicine and UT Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health in San Antonio. The MD/MPH is designed to prepare students to integrate medical and public health skills as practitioners and researchers. By combining MD training with an MPH education, students are better prepared to treat individuals and to address health issues in communities. The MD/MPH program is perfect for students interested in global health, community health, clinical research, infectious disease, health promotion, public policy or administration, environmental medicine, and preventative medicine.
