About

Students must be currently enrolled in the professional DVM degree program at the University of Tennessee (DVM students) to enter the dual DVM-MPH program. The Veterinary Medicine and Public Health program is offered by the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

Overview

Education

All requirements for both the DVM and MPH degrees must be met for admission. DVM students may enroll in the program at any time during years 1 - 3, but progress and time to completion will be affected by when a student starts the dual program and how many courses are satisfactorily completed each semester. Students will be expected to complete MPH-specific courses during the two summers following the first and second years of veterinary school. 

Students will pay graduate tuition fees during the summer semester and professional DVM tuition during the fall and spring semesters. Degrees do not need to be awarded simultaneously; if a student has not completed the requirements for the MPH, the student may still receive the DVM but must complete the MPH requirements within one year to take advantage of the shared credits. 

If a dual student completes the MPH requirements, but does not complete the DVM, the student may still be awarded the MPH. The Veterinary Medicine and Public Health program is offered by the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
