I'm doing it, although via the bass-ackwards route of getting the MBA first (graduated last May), and then the MD (starting this fall).

The most well-respected and well-received reason for pursuing both degrees is:
"Cash, flow, money, HOs"

Why would somebody choose an MD/MBA degree plan over an MD/MPH? I know that an MPH is pretty broad, but it seems alot of academic aministrators have one. Would an MBA be more suited for jobs with private health providers?
