VCOM partners with Virginia Tech to allow students who qualify to earn a parallel or dual degree. A Master’s in Public Health may be completed between the third and fourth years of the doctor of osteopathic medicine degree program. The dual degree program requires an additional year to complete. Additional costs occur and are paid to the accrediting institution (Virginia Tech) for tuition. In order to apply for the dual degree program, candidates must first be accepted to the DO program and apply to the secondary institution during their second year at VCOM.
