Following the master of public health year, MD-MPH students resume medical school to complete the fourth year and prepare for required courses and clerkships, electives and interviews for residency.

The fourth year of medical school provides students with an opportunity to participate in a variety of elective courses and clerkships that focus on population health.

Students gain additional public health experience through their preceptorship and community health rotations. Because of the constraints of a dual degree, students will be allowed priority in scheduling of neuroscience and the preceptorship.
