Graduate Advising

MD-MPH Dual Degree Program

Although Stanford does not offer a Master’s Degree in Public Health, we strongly encourage students to consider graduate-level training in public health as a complement to their medical education.

Most MPH programs require that students select an area of specialization. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Epidemiology
  • Biostatistics
  • Health Policy
  • Community Health
  • Environmental Health
  • Maternal & Child Health
  • Infectious Disease
  • Public Health Nutrition

Scholarly Concentration in Community Health

Community Health is one of the eight Scholarly Concentration Foundations. The Community Health curriculum empowers future physicians to improve the health of diverse communities and reduce health inequities through innovative scholarship and direct community engagement. Students learn the means to effect change through reflective service-learning, rigorous community-responsive scholarship, advocacy, and civic leadership.
