Master's Degree Programs
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. MPH programs require students to select an area of specialization such as epidemiology, health policy, community health, environmental health, maternal and child health, infectious diseases, and public health nutrition.
