The MD curriculum is structured so that interested students can pursue an additional degree in several available programs. Students will complete both degrees in less overall time than if the degrees were pursued separately.
Students typically apply to the other degree program during Phase 2 of the SOM curriculum. If accepted, the additional degree coursework is integrated within the Phase 3 curriculum and students graduate with both degrees.
