Default masters in research, is it good?

hi everyone!, im an IMG graduated last year. i was preparing my steps, but suddenly found the opportunity to study abroad (Europe) in a Masters ("Top" Masters actually, dont know why it has a fancy name..) in pharmaceutical and drug innovation. i like it so far, its mostly made to become a phD and i havent decided if im gonna follow that road. this masters last for 2 years. the thing is, if i dedicate myself to the masters for 2 years without having access to patient care, will i still be able to get back on the USMLE path after that? is a phD a good title to compete for a residency in the US? i hope my questions are clear, i know my professional life is kinda weird right now, but i found myself to be the person who wants to do both clinics and research.. hope i find some good advice
