MD-MPH Dual Degree Program

Welcome to the University of Cincinnati MD-MPH Dual Degree Program.  We prepare graduates to work as physicians in a public health setting, combining a degree in clinical care with a degree in approaching health and illness at the population level. Graduates have the skills and knowledge needed to identify and research public health issues, implement evidence-based solutions, and to engage in population health research, policymaking, education, and communication.

Why should I consider an MD-MPH?

Physicians with the MD-MPH credential work in clinical research, designing and carrying out studies; as directors of state and local departments of public health (such as Dr. Amy Acton, MD, MPH); as authors of health policy and advisors to policymakers; as hospital and departmental administrators; and as leaders in the creation and development of global health programs worldwide, among many other career paths.

Public health training prepares MD-MPH students to:

  • Effectively serve diverse populations, on the front line of issues of healthcare inequality
  • Address emerging and novel public health challenges
  • Work with policymakers, administrators, clinicians, and others in a team
  • Use their clinical expertise to support advocacy work
  • Independently design, analyze, and author research
