The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Fordham University's Graduate School of Social Service offer a collaborative program that enables students to simultaneously earn a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree and Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The MSW/MPH dual degree program provides an integrative approach to address health issues among vulnerable populations. By learning both public health and social welfare skills, you will improve health care delivery in communities.

The program enables you to earn both degrees in three years with a total of 99 credits. If you were to pursue both degree programs separately, you would need to complete a total of 111 credits over four years. Students can combine any of the four Fordham University concentrations with any of the Icahn Mount Sinai tracks:
