Students entering the first year program of the College of Medicine must apply for admission to the Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health prior to the April 1 deadline to be accepted in the summer program. Students must obtain admission separately to the MD program and the MPH program and file a Declaration of Intent to Pursue Combined Degrees according to the procedures to participate in the combined degree program.
JD/MPH Combined Degree Program

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) Bowen School of Law and the UAMS Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health, both located in Little Rock, Arkansas, have joined to offer an accelerated, coordinated course of study in both law and public health.


Upon completion of the coordinated course in 4 years rather than the usual 5 required for a full time student, the graduate will receive both a Juris Doctor (JD) degree and a MasterĀ of Public Health (MPH). In addition to providing a sound foundation in each discipline, the combined program will provide skills in the area of public health programs and interaction between public health and legal policy development.
The UALR Bowen School of Law and the UAMS Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health recognize the interrelationship between the legal system and the delivery of health care services. A student may be a good candidate for this opportunity if s/he wants to train for a leadership role in improving the health status of the community, state, or nation.
Students must obtain admission separately to the JD program and the MPH program and file a Declaration of Intent to Pursue Combined Degrees according to the procedures to participate in the combined degree program.
