Located in Nashville, Tennessee, Meharry Medical College is one of the nation’s oldest and largest historically black academic health science centers dedicated to educating physicians, dentists, researchers, and health policy experts. Founded in 1876 as the Medical Department of Central Tennessee College, Meharry was the first medical school in the South for African Americans. It was chartered separately in 1915.


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.).
