Dual Degree Programs
The M.D./M.B.A. Program is a five-year program offered in conjunction with the McDonough School of Business. Applicants must submit two separate applications – one to the M.D. Program and one to the M.B.A. Program. All applicants will be required to satisfy the appropriate admission requirements and application deadlines for the MD and MBA programs. The School of Medicine requires each applicant to interview at the School. The School of Business also requires an interview for admission. Individuals who receive acceptances from both programs may elect to enroll in the dual-degree program.
Given the complexities of both schools’ curriculum, a student who is interested in pursuing the dual M.D./M.B.A. Program must be accepted to and claim participation in writing to both programs in the dual degree program by August 1st of the year of matriculation to medical school. No exceptions will be made to this deadline to ensure the curricular integrity of both degree programs. Please note that these programs have separate deadlines and admissions requirements (one M.D. Program deadline and multiple round deadlines for the M.B.A. Program). If, for example, you are admitted to the M.B.A. Program before you learn of your decision to the M.D. program, you may request an acceptance confirmation extension from the M.B.A. Admissions Office while the results of your application to the M.D. Program are pending. Upon matriculation, students will be counseled and advised jointly by the School of Medicine and the Business School on the MBA requirements to be completed during the first two years of medical school in order to meet the degree requirements of both programs in five years. Upon acceptance, students should contact Annaliese Heussler, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, to set up a joint meeting with the Business School to begin scheduling M.B.A. elective requirements as soon as possible.

Georgetown University School of Medicine has a formal agreement with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the world’s largest school of public health, which has been training public health leaders from around the globe for nearly a century. The MPH is a degree program that provides integrated training in the core competencies of the field of public health, preparing graduates to address and solve current or emerging public health challenges through multidisciplinary approaches that apply the latest scientific knowledge, common sense and teamwork. Students in the program will obtain a population-based perspective on health, along with rigorous training in a schoolwide curriculum focused on the core disciplines of epidemiology, biostatistics, management sciences and the environmental, biological, behavioral and social factors that influence the health of populations and communities.
The M.D./M.P.H. Program is a five-year program, with individuals completing the M.P.H. between the third and fourth years of the M.D. program. Applicants must submit two separate applications – one to the M.D. program and one to the M.P.H. program. All candidates interested in applying may submit the M.P.H. portion of the application after completion of the second year of medical school. Applications to the summer 2016 full time M.P.H. program are due by December 15, 2015 for matriculation in July. Applicants are encouraged to apply early. We anticipate that applications for the summer 2017 program will be available in August 2016.
Upon acceptance to both programs, individuals will be required to complete all required courses/modules/clerkships for the M.D. program in addition to required courses, a population-based health or practicum requirement, and a Capstone project for the M.P.H. program.

The Doctor of Medicine and master’s programs are offered in conjunction with Biomedical Graduate Education. Students can craft their own dual degree pathway in completing any Biomedical Graduate Education Master’s program alongside earning an M.D. from SOM. Students can either complete the master’s program prior to starting the M.D. program or between the second and third year of the M.D. program.
Applicants must submit two separate applications – one to the M.D. Program and one to the master’s program. Applicants may apply either before starting medical school or during the first two years of medical school. Applicants must receive acceptances from both programs.
