Students may apply to the MPH program before or after admission to medical school. Prospective students may apply concurrently to both programs and be notified of acceptance prior to entering medical school. A separate MPH application and letters of recommendation are required for the College of Public Health admissions process. Prior to entering the MPH program students must be in good standing in the College of Medicine.
