Many medical schools and graduate schools offer courses related to public health or population health, but students may want additional training or experiences to enhance their ability to address the health needs of populations as well as individuals. Students interested in pursuing a master of public health (MPH) degree while earning their MD should browse the Directory of MD-MPH Educational Opportunities. Additionally, many medical schools offer public health tracks, opportunities to join or create a public health interest group, or public health elective rotations at city, county, state, federal, or international public health agencies. If you are a member of a professional society, consider joining its Public Health/Health Policy/Advocacy section.

Medical students should visit Careers in Medicine for help with career planning and specialty choice.
