MD/MPH Admissions

The MD/MPH program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai allows students to pursue a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree while simultaneously working towards their medical degree. Our dual degree MD/MPH program builds upon your expertise and prepares you to handle both the intricate issues faced by medical professionals as well as the challenges specific to public health. Join our MD/MPH program and change the world.

How to Apply

Once accepted into the MD program, students applying for an MD/MPH must complete a supplemental application obtained the medical school admissions office or by emailing publichealth@mssm.edu. The supplemental application includes an essay describing your interest in public health and completing a dual degree program. A separate SOPHAS application is not necessary. We recommend completing the essay as soon as possible after your acceptance to the MD program.

There are two options for studying at ISMMS’ MD/MPH Program.

Four year option

If you wish to complete your dual degree in MD/MPH in four years, you can take courses in public health in the evening, once medical school classes have ended.

Five year option

You also have the option of completing your MD/MPH degree over the course of five years. Students who decide to pursue the five year dual degree plan often devote their year off of medical school (known as scholarly year) to work on their MPH degree.
