The majority of students at the School of Medicine earn Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degrees, but the school also offers seven other medical degrees, including a Master of Medical Science (M.M.Sc.) through its Physician Associate and Physician Assistant Online Programs, and a Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) awarded by the School of Public Health. The Yale School of Nursing, a separate school within the university, offers two degrees.
Recognizing that issues related to health intersect with every aspect of civic life and that the study of medicine is not limited to patient care and biomedical science, the medical school also offers 12 joint degree programs in collaboration with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the schools of Management, Forestry and Environmental Studies, Divinity and Law. Through these programs, students can study the role medicine plays within the broader context of other academic specialties.
