The UIC College of Dentistry and UIC School of Public Health's Health and Policy Administration Division offer a joint degree program leading to the Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) and Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Science (MS CTS). The program is designed to prepare dental school graduates with the skills required to combine their clinical knowledge with the knowledge and skills needed for careers as researchers in the clinical and translational sciences. Graduates will be eligible for further training in specialty programs and will be able to advance successfully to tenure-track positions in dental schools that require research for promotion.
- Students must apply and be admitted into both programs separately to be eligible for a joint degree. The policies of each program with respect to admissions requirements, degree requirements, and other academic requirements are applicable.
- To apply for the MPH portion of the degree, students should visit the HPA MS CTS Admissions page. All applications are done through the Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS).
