    I can't think of anything off the top of my head for which both degrees would be helpful. Why do you ask?

    EDIT: Just thought of something: drug regulation, i.e. an FDA job.

    Depends on your area of specialization in MPH. If your focus in MPH revolves around Epidemiology, you could work in either Phase IV, or Safety Vigilence, or Phase III areas in a Pharmaceutical company.

    If your focus in MPH is more regulations oriented- you could potentially work in Regulatory Affairs within Pharma.

    Additionally, Clinical Operations is another option.

    If you don't particularly like working for private companies - you could work at the FDA.

    If I were 25 again and right out of school, I would begin with solid 7-10 years with the FDA before moving to Pharma.
