Selected students who have demonstrated the capacity to successfully manage course work for their primary academic degree, may request to enroll in a second degree program. This can be developed in four different settings:
- Students who are enrolled in one of the Midwestern University (MWU) Masters Degree programs in Arizona and are accepted at AZCOM may elect to complete the Masters Degree already begun.
- Students who wish to pursue a Masters Degree in Precision Medicine (MS), or Master in Public Health (MPH) at Midwestern University, may enroll through the College of Graduate Studies at the discretion of an Office of the Dean representative.
- A student who wishes to pursue a Masters Degree which is not offered at MWU (may include but not be limited to MPH, MBA, MEd) should investigate information about the desired program and discuss with an Office of the Dean representative. Students have a number of options for institutions offering such degrees in the metropolitan area.
- Students who wish to apply for a PhD program anywhere in the United States should investigate information about the desired program and discuss with an Office of the Dean Representative. Typically, those entering a leave of absence to participate in a PhD program will do so between years 2 and 3 of the DO program and may not enter the PhD program until after successfully completing the COMLEX-USA Level 1 examination. Participating in a Ph.D. program, may extend the completion date beyond 6 years.
