About to start a PhD Program but nervous and overall not that excited about the significant research component.  My end career goals involve clinical education and administration.  Is anyone post PhD or DMSc but was considering one of the two prior to enrollment?  I'm curious about the specific career aspects of the DMSc and if you felt the PhD would have been more helpful.

Might depend upon where you intend to work. Some academic institutions can be a little snobby about a PhD being the degree of choice. I'm in an EdD program and was told when I started some people light look down on it.

If you have the choice, do the PhD.  In Academia, it is THE degree - All of the professional doctoral degrees carry some degree of degree creep whereas the PhD in any field is just that -  a research based doctorate showing you possess the skills and attributes necessary to achieve the highest academic degree.
