Public Health as a PA?
From time to time I get asked, “Is a MPH degree worth it?” or “What do you do with a public health degree as a PA?” So in honor of NPHW, I invited some of my dual MPH/PA friends to help me answer my most FAQ about public health!
My start in public Health:
It was my junior year of college when I was on a “Rally to Tally” trip, where I met a group of MPH/DO students that really introduced me to the public health world. At the time, I knew I wasn’t ready for professional school and wanted to pursue a traditional MPH degree instead of a shortened dual degree.
