UMHS is excited to partner with Walden University, a U.S. regionally accredited online university, to offer concurrent enrollment opportunities to pre-med and medical students.  The concurrent enrollment model allows students to pursue a second degree that complements their clinical training and prepares them for the highly competitive residency match process by enhancing their academic credentials and developing their professional perspective.


Walden University has an established track record of concurrent enrollment success on the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree levels with dedicated support to allow students to succeed in both Walden's and UMHS' programs.  The concurrent enrollment model is structured so that students can effectively manage the time and workload requirements of their MD and joint degree.  


Walden programs can help you develop critical and creative thinking skills required to be successful in the healthcare field.  Walden concurrent curriculum will enhance your understanding of the evolving healthcare delivery system, both in the U.S. and abroad.  Medical students require a sound understanding of administrative policy and practices to administer care both effectively and efficiently in a rapidly changing environment.  The concurrent enrollment model cultivates disciplined students who are equipped with the skill set to be future healthcare industry leaders.
