One reason to choose a dual degree program is the career path you want to follow. Students should also keep in mind; a medical degree may not always help you to pursue some of the career areas you are interested in. But a dual degree may provide the the qualifications needed.
For instance, if you want to be involved in patient care for your entire career an M.P.H may not be that helpful. Buy if you want to go into research, teach at a medical school or work in administration, the added credentials of a related master programme may give you the edge. There are many disciplines to choose from in duel programs including bioethics, neuroscience, public health and immunology etc.
It is important to understand there will be differences between traditional medical school programs and those that combine a medical degree. Traditional medical schools focus on teaching students how to practice medicine while providing some opportunities for research. Duel programs place a much greater emphasis on the investigative and research side of medicine.
Medical school normally takes four years to complete. Although it may vary, most dual degree programs take 5 to 6 years . During the course of your program, you still complete all the medical school requirements including classes and clinical rotations. But you also complete the classes, research and dissertation needed to earn you other Master / PhD degree.
