MD/MPH - Texas Tech Med School El Paso

This four-year dual degree program is designed for students attending medical school at The Texas Tech Paul L. Foster School of Medicine. Students are advised to complete two public health core courses in the summer prior to medical school. The remaining public health courses are completed during the four-year medical curriculum with the option of a fifth year for those finding the four-year curriculum too demanding. The dual degree program is integrated so that a number of courses and learning experiences in the medical school are counted toward the MPH degree program. The program prepares future health professionals to integrate medical and public health skills into practice, research and academia. Students are admitted separately to each school and successful completion of the degree requirements will receive a diploma from each school.
