The Medical College of Wisconsin offers the Graduate Certificate program in Public Health and consists of 15 credits. This program is designed to last the average student about one to two years. Upon graduation students will earn a certificate that verifies the completion of graduate-level work although will not have a graduate-level degree. The program requires five core classes to be passed to earn the certificate. Upon completion of the Graduate Certificate in Public Health there is the option to transfer into the Master of Public Health program. It is required that the student have a B or better in each course to be able to qualify for transferring to the Master of Public Health degree program. For students that complete all five courses in the program with a B or better, GRE scores are not an admission requirement due to a waiver from the Medical College of Wisconsin.
There is no financial aid available for students are enrolled in the certificate program. If the student wishes to enroll for three or more classes per semester then they will not be eligible to enroll in the certificate program. Non-degree seeking students are allowed to choose the courses they would like to complete and therefore not be committed to the certificate program. For students in the certificate program, there are three letters of recommendation that are required for admission into the program.
