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.

When to apply? 

Students may apply to the MD and the MPH program at the same time. UW-Madison medical students may apply to the dual degree program (by applying and being accepted to the MPH program) after they enroll in medical school.

We encourage students who are interested in the dual degree program to apply during their first year of medical school. This allows an ideal amount of time for planning and integration into the program. Students who discover their interest in public health later in medical school are still encouraged to apply as several options exist for fulfilling degree requirements.

Applying to the Master of Public Health (MPH) Program

The application deadline is February 1.
