SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I have been doing some research on kind of jobs you can get with M.D/MPH. It seems that most of the MPH jobs don't require you to be a physician. And those that require you to be a physician don't utilize the physician part of your education to a significant extend. It seems like a waste to get medical education and then not being able to use it. So my question is why get both degrees when you are going to use only one of them? Just to satisfy ur ego? Or some of you guys plan to use your MPH degree for a side/part time job/volunteer work that involves community development? I had the impression that with MPH degree you can be a full time practitioner, and use your MPH degree to assist the hospitals in developing community development programs. Apparently, it doesn't seem like the case.
