Students must be admitted to both the college of Veterinary Medicine and the Master of Public Health program independently. Both degrees can be earned simultaneously or within a semester of each other, depending upon the student’s choice of schedule. Current DVM students must apply to the Master of Public Health Program prior to the start of their third semester. Likewise, MPH students who are interested in the DVM program must apply prior to their third semester. Shared DVM/MPH courses are at no extra charge to enrolled DVM students. A number of the non-shared MPH courses (regular tuition) are online and distance-mediated.
