PA/MPH – Dual Degree Option
You look forward to making an impact with your individual patients in your future clinical career. Public Health can help you expand your impact to a larger population, improving health at the community level. Best of all this can be completed through online courses during your PA program.
Expand beyond your clinical skills to encompass specialized public health training to develop, integrate and apply culturally competent social, psychological and biomedical approaches to health promotion and preservation. Gain an advantage when seeking roles that involve planning and managing health systems, performing clinical research, determining the cause of disease, or planning and implementation disease control strategies.
Take advantage of UNTHSC’s unique MPAS / Master of Public Health dual degree option. Utilize our online MPH courses to connect your medical career with opportunities in Public Health.
PA students can begin the MPH the spring or summer prior to their medical courses and then continue with courses as their load allows. Note: Students must have completed their bachelor’s degree to begin the MPH courses. PA faculty advisors assist in maintaining the enrollment balance and primary focus on medical classes. Timing allows students to complete the MPH during their PA studies or complete the MPH 1 year following the MPAS degree.
