Students accepted into the Boonshoft School of Medicine are eligible to apply to the Physician Leadership Development Program. Please complete and submit this form in October of your first year in medical school. PLDP applicant interviews take place in November.
Acceptance to the PLDP is contingent on acceptance to the M.P.H. program.
- Complete the PLDP M.D./M.P.H. Application. Please complete this form, including answering the four essay questions, and submit. Be sure to include your full name and an e-mail address where you can be contacted.
- Obtain two letters of recommendation from professionals that support your ability to participate in a dual degree program. They can be from persons who recommended you to medical school but must be different from your medical school support letters. Each professional’s letter should be on letterhead and signed. Letters of recommendation may be sent to the PLDP Coordinator (see addresses at bottom of this page) by U.S. mail or they may be scanned and submitted by email.
