Hi all. Does anyone have an opinion on doing a doctoral degree in Health Services Research? It seems like it's quite overlooked based on the lack of postings about it. Why is that?

Just saw the post.
I know a guy with this degree and he is worthless. He lost his clinical skills (former mid-level) and he pretends he is the academic equal with researchers and clinicians. It is almost as bad as D.Ed.

Yes, I can be an academic snob about degree inflation.

I think its an important and overlooked branch of public health. If there were more and better health services research, we'd probably be saving a lot of time and money by not fixing things that arent broken, and not abandoning things that are worth following through with.
