Recognizing the inherent synergy between medicine and public health, and the growing interest among medical students to earn a Master of Public Health (MPH) concurrently with the Doctor of Medicine (MD), CGU has partnered with California University of Science and Medicine to offer this unique dual enrollment program.

CGU’s School of Community and Global Health and the School of Medicine at California University of Science and Medicine offers the MD/MPH dual enrollment program at CGU for CUSM students who wish to acquire a deeper understanding of the history, organization, philosophy, and theories that undergird public health practice and research. The MPH degree also provides an enhanced appreciation for the myriad social determinants of health, the importance of community-based health promotion interventions and program planning, as well as the complexities of health services delivery.
