PharmD/MPH Dual Degree Program

A UW-SoP student administers a vaccine during a campus-wide Meningitis B clinic.

Drawing on the complementary strengths of the School of Pharmacy and the School of Medicine and Public Health, the PharmD/MPH program is intended to provide students currently enrolled in the PharmD program with expertise needed to integrate knowledge and skills in the delivery of pharmaceutical care with public health principles.

Dual degree students will gain skills to improve and maintain the populations of communities.  Individuals with Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Public Health degrees will be uniquely positioned to influence policy around medication use and define practice and research in response to important health problems, such as heart disease or the opioid epidemic.
