In cooperation with Thomas Jefferson University
, Widener Law’s Family Health Law and Policy Institute
offers a dual degree leading to both a Juris Doctor and a Master of Public Health (JD-MPH). If you plan to pursue a career as a private practice lawyer with a specialization in health law, or as legal counsel for a hospital or other medical institution, the JD-MPH program is for you. Admission
It is recommended that students apply first to Widener University School of Law, and, upon acceptance, then apply to Thomas Jefferson University.
- Typically, students complete one or two years of their legal education at Widener prior to beginning their MPH program.
- Admission to the joint program is determined independently, and students must meet the admissions criteria that pertain to each school.
- Eligible candidates will be invited for an interview at Jefferson.
The JD-MPH dual degree program prepares you for a rewarding and challenging career in the expanding field of health law. Armed with comprehensive knowledge of both public health policy and the law, you will find a number of intriguing options in your professional future. Depending on whether you wish to enroll part-time or full-time, you can complete both degrees in three to seven years. Contact Information
