    In general, yes. Not always. Only IM/Family Med people will give value. Other's wont value it much.

    I think Drexel. However, I would suggest going through their faculty and programs of your interest to see who is more research friendly in your areas of interest.

    sir, my target is 2011 match. i being in usa during my MPH will give me lot exposure & also, if not get matched in my 1st attempt in 2011....i may support myself with a job as public health proffesional in usa?
    Yes, u can. You can even find paid research assistant jobs later.

    It all depends on your strategy like when you will apply for residency after completion of 1st year of your MPH Progrm then it will leave a positive impression on PDs.Otherwise it will create a very bad impression and it shows that you were not interested in MPH and you were just doing it just for "jugar"
