A partnership between the College of Veterinary and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health allows students to earn a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree while completing their DVM training. Students may apply in advance of and at any time during their four years as a DVM student, up until January of their graduation year. Coursework for the MPH is completed through a combination of online and traditional classes. Online courses are offered during the summers. Traditional coursework is completed during two sessions (held in May) at the University of Minnesota. Up to 14 credits from the DVM curriculum (pre-approved by the School of Public Health) can be transferred to the MPH degree. Students also complete a field experience and master's project as part of their MPH requirements.
