The Doctor of Veterinary Medicine / Master of Public Health combined degree program pairs the existing Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) and Master of Public Health (MPH) programs, enabling students to complete both a DVM and an MPH degree in a reduced overall number of semesters. DVM/MPH students complete their four-year DVM program and then complete the requirements for the MPH in one-year (3 semesters) afterwards.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Current University of Guelph DVM students may apply to the combined DVM/MPH program in either their third or fourth year in the DVM program. Applicants to the combined DVM/ MPH program must meet the admission requirements of both individual programs. DVM students admitted to the DVM/MPH program in their third year will defer the start of their MPH program component until the following year, after they complete Phase 4 of their DVM program. DVM students are required to complete the One Health module as part of Health Management III. Please note: The combined degree program does not offer a different pathway for admission to the DVM program.
