Combined Degree Programs
First year students in good standing at TUSDM with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (or 85%) are welcome to apply. A mentor and a research project must be identified before applying. Two letters of recommendation, one from the student’s mentor, as well as a personal statement, are also required. The application deadline is April 15, 2018. For more information, visit the DMD/MS page.
Students can apply to the program during their second year of dental education. Admission to the DMD/MPH Program is a two-step process:
1. Students must submit a personal narrative to firstname.lastname@example.org. The prompt of the personal narrative is as follows: Describe your career objectives and why you are interested in dental public health training. The DMD/MPH Combined Program Admissions Committee will review the application. The Committee looks for academic achievement and demonstrated interest and activities in dental public health. Applicants with an interest in becoming board certified in dental public health will be given preference for admission.
2. If recommended by the Committee for admissions to the DMD/MPH Program, students must then complete a separate application to the MPH Program and be accepted by the Admissions Committee of the MPH Program.
