The Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine in the School of Medicine offers you a chance to earn a public health graduate education while pursuing a degree in medicine. Our program is part of a growing number of masters and doctoral degree programs offered by the Graduate Studies Program of St. George’s University. Students in the dual MD/MPH degree program can specialize in one of the following three tracks: Epidemiology Track; Health Behaviour & Policy Track; and Environmental and Occupational Health Track.
Dual degree MD/MPH students enrolled in our program are required to complete 42 credits of public health course work. 15 of the total credits are completed in public health core courses, six in program-required courses, 12 in track-required courses, and three in elective courses. The remaining six credits required for the MPH degree are earned between a field-based practicum, which provides six credits, and the culminating Capstone Seminar for three credits. The Capstone Seminar requires that a topical research paper is professionally written and then summarized in an oral presentation.
