much more useful than a "masters in pa studies". opens up options for the DrPH, working with doctors without borders, the CDC, etc

I am not considering a masters in pa studies i have a bachelors in pa studies and i’m practicing without restrictions. I am deciding between health administration and public health and seeking if there are any other good ideas or which one i should persue.

What are your long term career goals?

PAs have no role in Dr.s w/o borders if they dont have an MPH? or if not, what does the MPH add?

DWBs will use a PA with an mph for logistics, not in a clinical capacity. Of note, when they use NPs, they use them as RNs , not as clinicians. This was addressed a few years ago by PAFT in a letter to their board.

If you are contemplating moving to a state that expects an MS for prescribing rights, consider the online MS at U of Nebraska to check that box. Several PAs I know have done that.

You can always go on and get a nonclinical masters in something else that interests you.
