Master of Public Health Program at Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine


The Early Assurance Program with Penn State University College of Medicine Master of Public Health Program is an opportunity for Elizabethtown College students to gain a conditional acceptance during their third undergraduate year to the Pennsylvania State College of Medicine’s Master of Public Health Program upon completion of their baccalaureate.

The program was established to encourage undergraduate students to pursue careers as Public Health Professionals who focus on improvement of population health and reduce health disparities – across Pennsylvania, the nation, and the world – through excellence in education, research, and service.  This program gives students the option for automatic matriculation to The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine’s Master of Public Health Program upon completing a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Chemistry, General Science, Psychology, or Social Work (other majors must be approved by the Penn State University’s Public Health program), a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher, and GRE Test scores as stipulated by The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine.
