    Also, UMDNJ-SOM (U. Med/Dentisrty of NJ, Stratford, NJ) has a DO/PhD program. I'm not sure if they have a DO/MPH program. Penn. Coll. OM (PCOM) DOES NOT have a DO/PhD program (they don't grant PhDs). They DO have a DO/MPH program.

    OSU-COM has a DO/PhD program. You do the first two years like a normal med student, then two years of grad work, then two years of rotations.

    PCOM is starting a new combined science PhD in addition to their present combined PhD in public policy. I don't know if they are officially advertising it yet, but people on campus are talking about it. That gives you two DO/PhD options at PCOM.

    Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) has a DO/Ph.D. program. This is a fairly new school (graduating its first class in 2007), but the school is in collaboration with Virginia Tech, which is a big state school, so it gets pretty good big-school benefits. So far, my understanding is that you get the DO degree from VCOM and the Ph.D. degree from V Tech, and you start your ph.d. in your junior year after finishing the first two yrs of medical course work. When I contacted the school, I was informed that currently, there are about 18 students getting the dual degree from the school for Ph.D. in public health, but the school says the program will soon expand the possible ph.d. fields to biomedical sciences like immunology, and vet, psychology, etc. The school seems to be big on sports medicine too, so maybe there'll be some cool research for students to get invovled in with the V Tech's Sports Medicine Dept. Oh, and the school also mentioned that there'll be DO/MBA and DO/MS degrees available soon.

    Hope this helps. The link to the school:
