MD/MPH Program History
The joint degree program was launched in 1971.
Tulane University’s prestigious MD/MPH combined degree program celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021, and the program has only grown in popularity and renown throughout the years.
When Tulane inaugurated the MD/MPH combined degree program, it was one of the first programs in the country to permit students to meet all requirements for both degrees during the four-year medical curriculum. Since then, the program has grown and stands as one of the largest in the country.
The first four joint degree students graduated in 1975. Today, graduating classes regularly exceed 30 students. More than 1,000 students have graduated from the program since its start in 1971.
