Note: this is one of many attractive combined degree programs that are public health oriented.
We received the following note from Brown University:
We are pleased to announce the new Primary Care–Population Medicine Program at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. This combined degree program, in which students will receive both an MD and a Master of Science Degree in Population Medicine, will begin accepting applications in July 2014 for a matriculation date of August 2015. Students will complete the coursework and graduate in 4 years, with an option to take an additional year of study.
This dual degree program will emphasize the integration of the basic sciences, clinical medicine and population health, and include coursework in health disparities, social determinants of health, leadership, interprofessional collaboration and epidemiology. The Program will utilize the Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship model where students will gain an understanding of the continuum of health and disease and will participate in the care of patients wherever it is delivered.
It is a unique program that is designed to prepare our students to improve the health of patients and communities, and to become physician leaders at the local, state or national level. Students submit the usual AMCAS application to Brown and indicate interest to this new program through a check box in Brown’s secondary application.
