The PharmD/MPH dual degree program is available for students who are accepted for admission or currently enrolled in the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program at the UW–Madison School of Pharmacy. The PharmD/MPH dual degree is completed in 5 years. Students step out after year three of the PharmD program and complete their MPH year. After completing their MPH year, they then return to the PharmD program to complete their final year/Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences.
There are two options for applying to the PharmD/MPH Program:
- Option 1: Apply through the PharmCAS application at the time of pharmacy admission. Applicants are reviewed and admitted to each program separately. To review the PharmD application process in detail please visit PharmD Admissions. Applicants admitted through this process will defer their MPH admission until after the third year of pharmacy school.
- Option 2: Students already in the PharmD Program can apply during any application cycle in the first two years of pharmacy school. Applications are due annually on January 15. Admitted applicants can defer their admission until after the third year of the PharmD program. The MPH Program does not have rolling admission.
Students applying to the PharmD/MPH dual degree are exempt from submitting a GRE score and do not need to submit an additional MPH application fee. For information on the PharmD/MPH dual degree, please visit MPH Admissions.
