Is there any place I can find the 1st year's schedule of classes including the schedule for MD/MPH summer that starts in June? Thanks so much!

Edit: Wondering about a weekly schedule with hours and specific classes.

Edit: This is the schedule now but you can't see 1st semester or most of 2nd semester. Wish I could see it.

Summer was a little annoying as every public health course had mandatory attendance and ran from like either 9 or 10-3 or 4 minus a day per week. You start having 8 am pbl's 3x per week in fall and that extends to the end of the year. I'm not sure how anatomy will work for you but we had one 4 hour chunk every other week on a non-pbl day starting at 9am, which extend till march. That leaves 1 day off on anatomy on weeks and 2 days off on anatomy off weeks, but like I said that may vary with the curriculum changes.

Does anyone know if MPH classes are pass/fail or graded?
Graded, but do not count in your rankings
Not sure if that changes with the p/f implementation

At my recent interview, the MPH people said that they do not plan to move the MPH courses to p/f. However, they suggested that residency directors either did not see the MPH grades because the degree is not complete yet (?) or did not really care about them.

MPH courses are graded but in your MSPE which is the "Dean's letter" it only mentions that you're in good standing to completing your MPH and residency programs do not get a transcript of those grades - i.e. you basically just need to pass the courses while absorbing as much as you can so that you get your money's worth.

It will be really easy to blow off the assignments but again, I stress that you should learn as much as you can. Plus, you can and will be embarrassed if you're asked to call on this background and you have nothing to show for it lol.

So, the MPH courses do not go on your transcript? I'm confused because if you submit your transcripts to residency programs and your MPH grades are on your transcript what do you mean by they don't get those grades? Are they maybe separate transcripts for MD and MPH and only have to send MD transcripts? I'm confused lol thanks in advance!

I forget the specifics whether they only send medical coursework on the transcript or if the MPH coursework just says pass but they do not get a numerical value of your MPH stuff - this has been verified.

Admin specifically did this so that students could learn without the added pressure since we are getting two degrees at once.

I emailed Weisman again on Monday about the alternate list and this is what he said: We are having some activity with a few students coming off of the alternate list. I think that this will be the last week we will go to the alternate list. If you haven’t heard from us by Friday, I think you might move forward with other plans.

Has everyone who has emailed him gotten a response? I emailed on the first of May and a follow-up a week after, but haven’t heard anything yet.

Just FYI: I emailed him on May 2 and he responded within an hour. Your email may have just been at the bottom of his inbox tbh. Not sure.

I'm MD only. I was surprised too because I thought there would be a lot more movement on the alternate list into June. This could also be me specific though so I'd definitely email him to ask.

I e-mailed Dr. Weisman this morning regarding movement off the alternate list for the MD/MPH program. His response was that the class has been at capacity and they have not been able to accept additional applicants off the waitlist. He said that he did not expect that will change this year.

Hey guys, I emailed Dr. Weisman about the MD alternate list earlier and he said they haven't had a great deal of movement on the list this year, but "anything is possible up to mid-June"
