Courses in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health are open to students of the School of Medicine without payment of additional fees if consent is obtained from the course instructor and the administrative officers of the School of Medicine. Interdivisional registration forms must be used to enroll in Bloomberg School courses.
Medical students may elect to pursue the Master of Public Health (MPH) program in the Bloomberg School in conjunction with the medical curriculum. The program will consist of eleven months of required and elective courses in the Bloomberg School. This is exactly the same program followed by other individuals pursuing the MPH degree, as described in the catalogue of that School. The specific elective course program will vary according to the special interests of the individual student.
Medical students integrate this special program into their medical curriculum by taking a year's leave of absence on completion of the second or third year. During that year the student is enrolled full time in the MPH program in the Bloomberg School.
All applications are subject to the approval of the Admissions Committee of the MPH program in the Bloomberg School. School of Medicine approval for all programs must be obtained from the Associate Dean for Medical Student Affairs. Comparable study arrangements are possible also for medical students in other U.S. medical schools.
Opportunities are available for further training within the departments of the School and in numerous graduate degree programs. For those interested, information concerning these programs may be obtained from Admissions Services in the Bloomberg School.
