Question Masters in public health

Dear Everyone

I was wondering whether a masters degree in public health or health sciences add weight to your application for residency? What are the masters programs that program directors like to see in applicants?

A MPH or a MS would improve your application, No doubt. Many residents get Masters degrees in public health, medical education, biomedical sciences, or clinical/medical research. You can contribute to the program, with your expertise in the field of your training.

Hope it was helpful, GL
