As the title would suggest, I have completed my MBBS degree from Bangladesh and will be starting my one year obligatory internship soon. I was using my free time to look up what I could possibly study in the future and happened to come across MHA.

I have heard about MPH a lot, and it's definitely an interesting field with a wide variety of career opportunities. However, I recently read about healthcare administration and wanted to know more about it. From what I've read online, it appears that a lot of nurses study MHA looking to get into the administrative side of things. To get a job, a bachelors in healthcare administration isn't good enough.

So that's why I was wondering whether me, as a MBBS graduate and one year of work experience, should apply to MHA and whether that will help me get a good job after graduating or whether this won't matter and nurses will have a preference over me. I'm not against nurses or anything but rather I was wondering if MHA after MBBS is a good career path , that's all.

Oh and I chose Canada since my family lives there. I would prefer to study there

Thanks for any info!
