DO students can begin the MPH the summer prior to their medical courses and then continue with courses as their load allows. TCOM faculty advisors assist in maintaining the enrollment balance and primary focus on medical classes. Alternatively DO students may wait until their 3rd year to begin the MPH program. Timing allows students to complete the MPH during their DO studies or complete the MPH 1-2 year following the DO program.
