Combined/Dual Degree Opportunities

The VCU School of Medicine, in conjunction with other Schools at VCU, offers several Combined/Dual Degree programs as a way for exceptional students to combine training in two related, complementary areas. Students pursuing Combined/Dual Degrees can combine research with clinical training, clinical with administrative training, public health with clinical training, as well as training in other complementary fields. Students that earn Combined/Dual Degrees are rigorously trained in multiple fields, leading to an enhanced breadth that makes them competitive for leadership positions in research, medicine, clinical services, hospital administration, and other fields.

Please follow the links below for more information about our Combined/Dual Degree programs.


Financial Support, Tuition & Fees

DUAL Financial

Each of our Combined/Dual Degree programs is unique and therefore each program has its own costs and (in some cases) support available for enrolled students. Please contact each program for more information.

Appropriately enrolled U.S. citizens and permanent residents might be eligible for financial aid. For more information, please contact the VCU School of Medicine Financial Aid Office.





DUAL Apply

Each Combined/Dual Degree program recruits students that are uniquely qualified and therefore each program has its own admissions process. Please contact each program for more information on how to apply.
