Admission to DVM/Master of Public Health Program

The DVM/MPH program is a unique dual degree track providing students the basics for understanding and practicing public health. Preparing generalists with a sound foundation in public health disciplines, this combined degree program graduates professionals seeking public health positions in government, research, international health, private industry, and academia.

Interested applicants must apply separately to the DVM and MPH programs, meeting application requirements of both programs. Applicants receive information and an application for the MPH program only after they have been selected for an interview for admission to the DVM Program. The MPH application for admission must be submitted by March 1 to the Office of Admissions at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

Tuition and fees for the year are payable according to Tufts University guidelines. An additional MPH tuition is charged each semester of the four-year program.

Financial Aid for the MPH program is not guaranteed. There are limited, short-term funds that may be available through the Veterinary Student Research Training Program for National Defense, and if accepted, applicants will be notified if any are available.
