    Sidney Kimmel Medical College: MD-MBA/MHA or MD/MPH?

    Hello folks, I have recently gotten admission to my dream medical school and now upon more research, I found a few different areas of study I would like to look into as well (offered by the school). Either I can work on an MBA/MHA or I can work on an MPH in association with my medical degree...

    Applying to MD/MPH programs - now or later?

    I'm planning on applying to MD programs within the next few weeks with the goal of pursuing an MD/MPH. Would it be wise to select the combined MD/MPH option for some schools on my AMCAS app, or apply to regular MD programs and apply for MPH in med school? Or does it not matter? A few students...

    Deferring undergrad loans for an MD/MPH

    Hi SDNers, So ideally, I'd like to do an MD/MPH program. From what I've heard, these typically take 5 years to complete. Upon graduation, I'll be in ~$50+ worth of debt (85% private, 15% fed). I'd like to defer repayment during med school but given my private lender limits in-school deferment...

    Phd vs Masters in health economics after MD/MPH

    Hello dear friends, I'm a 5th year MD/MPH student in Iran (MD is a 7-year undergrad degree here so I will finish after 2 years). also FYI we do MPH while doing MD and this doesn't extend the duration of the MD. I have a strong interest in the topics of health economics and health-care management...

    What "counts" as research?- Do I have to work in a professor's lab?

    Sorry if this has been posted before- I looked around and couldn't really find a helpful answer. I know that having research experience is important for medical school admissions, and I'm currently kind of confused about what medical schools are interested in seeing, plus I've gotten a lot of...

    Do you stop practicing medicine when you start pursuing public health research with an MD/MPH?

    I'm currently interested in an MD/MPH, but I wasn't sure what a future career with this dual degree looked like. If I'm interested in later helping form health policies or doing public health research for the underserved community, am I able to do this while still being a practicing physician?

    Value of an MPH?

    I have received an acceptance and nice merit scholarship to a 4 year MD/MPH program (scholarship is only for the MPH). However, completing the MPH will still add decent amount of debt to my name (~35,000), and 100% of my MD degree is being covered in loans as well. I am particularly interested...

    What are all of the Medical Schools that have MD and MD/MPH apps viewed independently of each other?

    I know for UM Miller School of Medicine, if you apply MD and MD/MPH then your app gets considered for both programs but rejection/acceptance of one doesn't hinder your chances for the other. So essentially it'd be like applying to two schools in one and doubling your chances of attending the...

    Hello everyone, I am a year behind on the application cycle due to a major change from History to Human Biology after my Freshman year.
