You may want to combine the MD degree with an additional degree in a separate graduate program. If so, Ohio State offers several outstanding options.
The MD/PhD Medical Scientist Program trains physician scientists. Students are recruited on the basis of scholastic and research achievement and demonstrated commitment to medicine. In addition to the traditional MD/PhD curriculum, an Integrated Medical Scientist Program is offered and the synchronized coursework allows students to complete the program in less time.
The MD/MBA program readies future physicians to meet the challenges of business administration and financial issues in the practice of medicine. The program combines the MD curriculum along with a Business Administration program through the Top 25 Fisher College of Business at OSU.
MD/MHA recipients may choose to use the degree to enhance their clinical practice of medicine or as the means to a career in hospital management or health policy. The program joins the MD curriculum, along with a nationally prominent masters program in Health Services Management and Policy. This MD/MHA degree program is the first of its kind in Ohio, and one of only a few in the nation.
Graduates of the MD/MPH combined degree program have exciting opportunities in both the public and private sectors, working on issues as diverse as bioterrorism, cancer prevention, and quality improvement in health services. Many MD/MPH holders assume leadership roles in government agencies, academic medicine, health policy, and research.
The MD/JD degree program is designed to prepare future physicians to meet the challenges of legal issues in offices, hospitals, comprehensive medical centers and health-care related industries. The program combines the full resources of the MD curriculum as preparation for the practice of medicine, along with the nationally prominent Moritz College of Law program. This program allows the two degrees to be completed in six years of beginning study rather than seven.
