SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. I am wondering what people's opinions are of an MPH as a "stand alone" degree (ie, not attached to an MD, etc.). I am considering med school, however many of my interests fall in the public health arena. It seems to me that employment opportunities might be somewhat restricted with an MPH alone... what has been the experience of any recent MPH grads out there? Is it worth putting in the time/$$ for an MD when my ultimate career goals would entail population-focused work? Thanks for your input!!
