The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health MD-MPH dual degree program requires that students apply to and be admitted to each program separately. Students who are accepted by both programs will be in the MD-MPH dual degree program.

MD-MPH student Hayley Severson talks about her experience in the dual-degree program.

When to apply? 

If an MD applicant is invited to complete the secondary application, they will see an option where they can indicate if they are interested in applying to the MD-MPH combined program. All MD-MPH applicants will FIRST go through regular MD Admissions Committee review.

  • If accepted to the MD program and the applicant indicated MD-MPH on their secondary application, the applicant will be sent an email by the Office of Admissions with instructions about a supplementary MPH essay.
  • If the student is not accepted to the MD program, the notification communication will inform applicants that if they still wish to be considered for admission to the MPH program, they will need to apply to the MPH program directly.
