Today, Meharry includes a medical school, dental school, and a graduate school and is home to the Robert Wood Johnson Center for Health Policy at Meharry. We offer a variety of degrees, including Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.), Master of Science in Public Health (M.S.P.H.), Master of Health Sciences (M.H.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.).
