I know the brigham has a center for surgery and public health ...Adcadet said:If I recall correctly it was a guy interested in going into surgery and was wondering if an MPH would be beneficial for him. I think the concensus was generally affirmative with the usual caveats.
i, too, am interested in this area. i know of no such programs, but I have yet to check through more MPH programs descriptions. as an aside, just finished reading "Contact wounds: a war surgeon's education" by Jonathan Kaplan, an itinerant orthopedic surgeon who travels the globe doing pro-bono surgery in combat zones, such as Angola, the Middle East, etc. a bit too personal at times (too much about his sexual affairs), it is nevertheless an interesting book for anyone with an interest in world health and surgery.greaper said:Hi friends, i read on one of the posts in this forum that there is a sub category of MPH which is public health and surgery. Really interested in getting more info on that and the schools that provide that.
Thanks Ranger, Now i get it how the surgery and MPH thing is feasible, one year of research or MPH. Thanks a million for the info.Ranger47 said:I am doing an MPH at Utah and a guy in my class is like a 5th year neurosurg resident. He could either take a year for research or an MPH.
