Veterinary students desiring a Master of Public Health (MPH) may enroll in the MPH program after graduation or after at least two years of veterinary school.  Students in the DVM/MPH program will earn a DVM from their veterinary school and an MPH from Johns Hopkins. 

In particular, JHSPH has partnered with the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) to offer combined degrees where JHSPH MPH graduates enter RUSVM to study veterinary medicine and that RUSVM DVM graduates enter the JHSPH MPH program.  For information on the RUSVM program, visit


Veterinary students typically enroll in the MPH program between the 3rd and 4th year of medical school. Coursework must be completed in the 11-month, full-time format. Learn more about the MPH curriculum.

How to Apply 

Requirements are the same as the full-time MPH program. Veterinary students must apply to the program and request a leave of absence from veterinary school. The years of veterinary training will fulfill the two years of health experience required for admission to the School’s MPH program.  Veterinary students apply to the MPH program through SOPHAS.
