Dual Degrees

The dual degree programs offered at Vanderbilt University allow students to reduce the period of time required to complete each degree separately, usually eliminating one full year of study.

For all M.D. dual degrees, except the M.D./Ph.D., the first three years are normally spent in the M.D. degree program. M.D. students may elect to apply for admission to a recognized dual degree program at any time during their first three years in the medical school. Students who apply for admission to the M.D. program during their first year in another recognized dual degree may also be considered for dual degree status.

Due to the blended nature of dual degree experiences, participating students are expected to abide by the School of Medicine Honor Code and to maintain the professional standards of the M.D. degree while participating in degree programs offered in other VU schools, in addition to complying with any standards established by that alternate program. If a student is concerned that expectations between programs may be in conflict, they should confer with the associate dean for medical student affairs.

The following are dual degree programs recognized by the VUSM MD Program.
