Plant Medicine Program Information
Coordinator: Amanda C. Hodges
The Doctor of Plant Medicine (DPM) program is an intensive doctorate-level graduate level training program for students interested in plant health diagnosis and management. Requirements for the degree can be found in the Graduate Degrees section of this catalog.
DPM students complete rigorous coursework and intensive internships. Only DPM students jointly enrolled in one of our discipline department M.S. or Ph.D. programs complete a thesis or dissertation. DPM students often participate in applied research within laboratory programs, and may participate in the publication of peer-reviewed scientific and extension papers. More information regarding the latest policies for the DPM program is available in the DPM graduate handbook.
The DPM program is a partnership among faculty mentors and teaching faculty within the following primary departments:
- Entomology and Nematology Department
- Department of Plant Pathology
- Agronomy Department
- Horticulture Sciences Department
- Environmental Horticulture Department
- Soil and Water Sciences Department
- Food Science and Human Nutrition Department
