DPM-MPH Program

The NYCPM and the ISMMS Graduate Program in Public Health Program work together to offer podiatric college students the opportunity to complete an MPH degree during their podiatric training. Podiatric students interested in this should first contact Dr. Eileen Chusid at the NYCPM. Students interested in applying for matriculation to ISMMS while they are NYCPM students must first obtain approval from Dr. Chusid to apply to ISMMS.

Eileen Chusid, PhD Dean, Pre-Clinical Sciences New York College of Podiatric Medicine 53 East 124th Street New York, NY 10035 212-410-8127 EChusid@nycpm.edu

All financial aid is handled through the NYCPM. Podiatric students accepted into the ISMMS MPH Program complete the degree over the four years they are enrolled at NYCPM. Students typically complete course work and Applied Practice Experience during the first two years of training and a Culminating Experience during the last two years of training.

Dual Degree DPM-MPH students may transfer a total of 3 credits from NYCPM to be applied to the MPH degree at ISMMS. The transfer credits are limited to DCHMD 2615 Medical Ethics and the Art of Doctoring and DCHMD 2602 Research Methodology and Epidemiology. Students must earn a grade of B or better in these courses to be eligible for transfer credits. The transfer credits will serve as general MPH elective credits.
