Add Some OoM.P.H. To Your M.D.!
Einstein’s Global Health Center (GHC) and the City University of New York School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) have joined together to offer a combined M.D./M.P.H. degree program specifically for students in the Einstein M.D. program. Designed to fit into a gap year, the program is currently composed of online courses and a fieldwork requirement.
Einstein students can choose from four different concentrations: Environmental & Occupational Health Services, Health Policy & Management, Public Health Nutrition, and Epidemiology & Biostatistics. The CUNY SPH fieldwork requirement is fulfilled by a summer global health fellowship through the GHC.
Einstein students can also take on an optional Global Health Focus to their concentration; in addition to global health policy elective coursework, students conduct research in collaboration with Einstein and CUNY faculty with the expectation of publishing in a peer-reviewed journal.
“The goal of the combined M.D./M.P.H. program is to build a stronger foundation in public health concepts and develop skills to address wellness issues on multiple levels, including individual patients, local communities, and the general population,” said Jill Raufman, director of medical student global health programs at Einstein.
Ranked second in New York State by U.S. News and World Report for public health, CUNY SPH trains its graduates to be innovative leaders in the field of public health.
The deadline to submit applications is Friday, April 1, 2022. Please contact Jill with any questions. You also can view more details about the program and the application process on the program’s website.
