Students at Carolina who pair a Pharm.D. and a master's degree in public health enhance
their clinical pharmacy education with studies focused on public health policy, epidemiology
The combination Pharm.D./Master of Public Health (MPH) program is ideal for a pharmacist
who seeks to add public health principles to professional patient care studies. A
joint degree is highly desirable for students who plan to pursue a career in local,
state or national health-related agencies or practice environments such as hospitals
and health systems, managed-care or community health organizations.
The Pharm.D./MPH degree is offered between the University of South Carolina's College
of Pharmacy and the Arnold School of Public Health. Pharmacy students will be able to enroll in the Master's of Public Health (General MPH) program at the Arnold School of Public Health. This program is available to pharmacy students
on the University of South Carolina and the Greenville Hospital System campuses. Although
about one-half of the MPH curriculum is offered via distance education, the remaining
program coursework is available at the UofSC Columbia campus.
