PhD/MPH - UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics

The PhD/MPH dual degree program combines the MPH from the School of Public Health with the PhD degree from The University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics at Houston. The training and curriculum in the dual degree program are designed to provide students and future leaders in public health with the necessary skills to be leaders in the field of Public Health Informatics. This dual degree program provides an integrated curriculum that includes a number of shared courses as well as a practicum experience and/or the thesis topic in the area of public health informatics. The selection of specific academic programs and scheduling of specific courses, fieldwork and practica for individual students is guided by an advisory committee, which includes faculty from both institutions.

Students in the dual degree program must be admitted separately to each institution and must meet the requirements of each institution for its respective degree. Admission to one program does not assure admission to the other. Students in the dual degree program will receive a diploma from each degree program after meeting the individual requirements of each program.
