What to Expect
You must apply and be accepted to the MD and MA programs separately, but this process can take place concurrently. If you’re a medical school student, you can apply to the master’s degree program before the start of the fall semester of your first year.
Then, while in medical school you’ll work with your advisor to lay out your master’s degree schedule. You can choose electives based on your interests—whether that’s mental illness and bioethics, international bioethics or neuroethics.
Once you’re here, you'll study in our state-of-the-future Health Education Campus with Cleveland Clinic, where you'll learn alongside nursing, dental and physician assistant students. This approach, called interprofessional education, is a hallmark of our MD program—designed to prepare you for the team-based healthcare system in which you'll practice in the real world.
