Do you have a strong interest in public health issues?


Baylor College of Medicine has partnered with The University of Texas School of Public Health to jointly sponsor a five-year M.D./M.P.H. degree program.

Students accepted into the program spend their first three years at Baylor. In addition to medical school classes, students will take several online public health classes.

The fourth year is spent taking classes at UTSPH.

The fifth year, it's back to Baylor for the last year of medical school.


"The dual degree M.D./M.P.H. program was an incredible experience that has broadened my perspective as a clinician. The integration of public health during my medical school training has influenced the way I view my patients in the context of their greater social and environmental structures, allowing me to better address all of their needs."

- Beverly Lee, alumna
