DVM/MPH Elective Courses

Several elective offerings are made available on the Cummings School campus specifically for DVM/MPH students. Elective courses are also available for third and fourth year students during a four week period in March and April. Individual elective courses are offered, at most, once every two years. Usually six or seven electives are offered each spring, although course offerings in any given year may vary. With approval from the Program Director, students may take electives offered elsewhere in the MPH program, at Tufts University, or at other institutions. The following are examples of courses taught in recent years:
