Why would I want to combine an MPH with an MD? What are the benefits of including public health in primary care?

How do I pursue this option and how do I know that it’s right for me?

Bridging public health and primary care is essential to improving the health of the population, and as this knowledge is spread, more and more clinical careers are demanding a combined focus on public health and medicine.
