LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Texas Tech University are joining a growing number of institutions that offer the opportunity to earn a J.D./M.D. degree.
The Doctor of Jurisprudence/Doctor of Medicine Dual Degree Program's goal is to create an opportunity for students who want to combine these two courses of study in an integrated program. The J.D./M.D. program is designed specifically for individuals interested in the areas of health law, healthcare policy, bioterrorism, forensics or biomedical compliance.
Earning both degrees typically requires seven years of study. This new joint program will require 6 years. Nationally, the TTUHSC School of Medicine and the TTU School of Law are the first to offer the program at one institution.
