Author information

Department of Community Health, Aging and Health Policy, Temple University of Podiatric Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA.


This article discusses the need for and the advantages of a dual degree program between podiatric medicine and public health. The authors expand on the existing program for public health education at the first professional degree level to include a conceptual model for a dual degree program developed at Temple University's Department of Health Studies, through the Graduate School and the School of Podiatric Medicine. The model combines didactic and clinical education at the graduate level to ensure that clinicians involved in determining health policy are prepared to represent the profession in the restructuring of the health-care system.
