PharmD/MPH Dual Degree


The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) College of Pharmacy and the University of Memphis School of Public Health have aligned to offer a Dual Degree Program leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) from the UTHSC and a Master of Public Health (MPH) from the University of Memphis. Under this agreement, students will complete all requirements for each degree and be awarded the PharmD and MPH degrees according to all requirements and specifications for each degree that the respective institutions. Students interested in the PharmD/MPH must apply and be accepted to both programs separately. Acceptance by one program does not guarantee admission to the other degree program as each admission process is conducted on an independent basis. Both institutions will collect tuition and fees separately.

A student must fulfill all requirements for admission to the MPH program as specified by the University of Memphis. Applicants may substitute PCAT scores for the GRE. Students who do not have a bachelor degree must complete all requirements of the PharmD degree prior to MPH being awarded. The MPH program will accept as transfer a maximum of 15 credit hours of pre-determined pharmacy coursework toward the elective credits for the MPH degree. The PharmD program will accept as transfer a maximum of eight (8) credit hours of MPH coursework that will be counted towards elective credit hour requirements. Students enrolled in the program are responsible to request transfer of credit.
