The MD-MPP dual degree is an interdisciplinary five-year program appealing to medical students interested in pursuing career opportunities to perform high-quality analyses of local, state, federal, and global health issues. MPP policy analysis and public management tools can help physicians become more effective players in the health care policy world. In addition to meeting Duke School of Medicine (SOM) requirements, the five-year MD-MPP includes 39 units of public policy course work, a public policy summer internship, and the completion of a Master’s Project under the close supervision of a public policy faculty advisor. Students are accepted to Duke SOM through their regular application process; they then apply to Duke Public Policy in the fall of their second year. Interested Medical School students should contact Dr. David Matchar, Third Year Study Track Director, for discussion of their choice of mentor project and additional information on the MD-MPP dual degree.
