J.D./M.D. in Law and Medicine

This six-year program is designed for students interested in both medicine and the legal aspects of medicine.  It links the M.D. degree with intensive training in the law and provides a full J.D. education with an additional focus in the health sector. Completion of the law degree will prepare graduates of the dual degree program for careers in health law practice, as well as healthcare systems and healthcare policy, in both government and private sectors. Graduates of the program will also gain the qualifications to practice law and/or medicine, depending on their career direction.
