M.D./M.P.H.

The combined M.D./M.P.H. program at the Wayne State University School of Medicine is designed to educate and engage students in public health theory, practice and research to understand and improve the health of urban and diverse populations. The three major functions of the Master of Public Health Program include instruction, research and service in public health.

If you’re not ready to commit to a full Master of Public Health degree, you can register for a graduate certificate in public health practice with the option of transferring earned course credits to the M.P.H. degree at a later date.
