Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is great in terms of curriculum and competiveness in the Master of Science in Public Health Field. It is a generalist program meaning there are no specified tracks to go into and tuition is quiet costly (but who doesn't have high tuition). Financial Aid is helpful once here but YOU MUST search for scholarships actively on your own. Cost of living is rising in Tennessee so picking an affordable place, in great proximity to campus is a high priority among the students so that they do not wait and due to time constraints are left with one and not the other. The Faculty and Staff are very helpful and approachable. The work load is what you would expect at any graduate program and maybe even lighter due to the fact many students hold jobs and other leadership positions in the community comfortably while completing school curriculum and daily scholastic task. Overall I love my institution and would recommend it to anyone!!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I received a Masters of Health Science degree from Meharry Medical College School of Graduate Studies and Research in May of 2015 and I found the program to be incredibly helpful and instrumental in furthering my education. I was able to utilize the knowledge and experience gained during the completion of this degree program to better myself as both a man and a student of biology. The program more than adequately prepared me to pursue a career in dentistry of which I am extremely excited to begin as I've been accepted into Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry class of 2019 with a cumulative graduate school gpa of 3.83.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

The dental program is very demanding, but the knowledge and skills gained will prepare you to work in any aspect of dentistry. The difference at Meharry is that your professors and peers provide you with the extra help with anything thing you are struggling with. If you are willing to put in the work then Meharry will get you to your goal. you won't find that at any other medical school. I'm more than happy with my choice to attend meharry. The city of nashville also provides activities that will fit anyone's intrests. From shopping, live concerts, hiking trails, parks, local restaurants, football, hockey, and counrry music there is alway something to do in your free time.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The absolute best quality of the MD program is the incredible amount of support available to you throughout your academic career. including financial support in the form of scholarships. Faculty and staff are constantly advocating on behalf of the student, even when the students is not aware. One con is regardless of your learning style, faculty expect and often mandate lecture attendance in contrast with most other medical schools. For this reason, the school is not open to upgrading technology to accommodate video recorded lectures and virtual lectures.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: - Meharry is a "family" oriented atmosphere, meaning you don't feel like just a number or individual all alone competing in the world of dentistry. At Meharry, everyone is part of a family unit; we support one another through this whole journey. - The lower student-teacher ratio enables you the opportunity to experience more one-on-one instruction. - Meharry is a historically black college, and they also accept a number of Caucasian, Asian, & Latino ethnicities, therefore you will get to experience a wonderful array of diversity. Cons: - The institution needs to remodel some of their clinics and classrooms, just to make them look more "up to date" or "modern." - The school is located in the heart of Nashville, TN, so safety is sometimes in question at night, but the security staff is always on duty and happy to walk students to their car.

If you want to pursue a medical school, there really are no cons. I mean the school is not in the safest area, but security is awesome so we've never had an incident. Meharry will give you the MD degree you are pursuing, and it does a fantastic job doing it. Meharry does it's job, so as long as you're willing to work for that board score, it'll happen.
