I'm currently a 3rd year medical student and I'm interested in pursuing a public health degree either during residency or after a residency program.

I'd really like to work in a multicultural community (doing family or internal medicine) -- and would be happy to hear about recommendations for specific residency programs that are particularly strong with respect to community health training. In the long run I would like to be able to do work in health care delivery and preventative health programs.

Suggestions, advice, good places to go for away rotations for 4th year ??

Try the CDC in Atlanta. The CDC is THE nerve center for public health in the country and it trains more public and community health specialists than any other organ in this country.

They run the U.S.'s biggest General & Preventative Medicine residency, a residency that is specifically geared towards doctors who want to work with Population Health issues.

Also Johns Hopkins is famous for its Public Health training. Also try them.
