Solutions to today's health problems increasingly rely on improving knowledge and changing behavior. To combat AIDS, heart disease, cancer, drug and alcohol abuse, mental illness and diseases related to nutritional disorders, public and community health officials must change people's health practices and attitudes.

Osteopathic Medicine and Public Health Dual Degree

Osteopathic physicians, trained in a tradition of caring, responsive, people-oriented medicine, are uniquely suited for leadership in community education and public health. PCOM's flexible curriculum allows you to complete an MPH degree program in five academic years either through a decelerated curriculum or a dedicated academic leave to complete public health graduate work.
