The joint Juris Doctor and Master of Public Health in Health Policy and Management (JD-MPH) program between the Robert H. McKinney School of Law and the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health provides students with an interdisciplinary curriculum in law and health policy and management. Students are trained to address the legalities, issues and problems affecting personal and public health.
Individuals must independently apply and be accepted into both the McKinney School of Law JD program and the School of Public Health MPH program. Once students have been accepted into this joint degree program, they should meet with their academic advisors to plan the course sequencing. The program includes 82 credit hours in Law courses and 45 credit hours in MPH courses. Nine hours of courses count for both the JD and MPH.
