I am Minu Velan, international 2009 medical graduate, I have done all my steps but I have a 3rd attempt in step 1 and 2nd attempt in CK. I have not got any intervies last match and I require visa sponsor ship. So I am planning to do MPH or physician assistant program. PLease suggest me which one will help me seak residency, MPH or PA?
I am scared of MPH because if it takes time to join residency job with MPH concentrations like health promotion is very low when I need visa. I am ok with the time taken for PA programs, 6 monts of physiology plus 2 yrs and 3 months course. Please suggest me.
Thank you


I won't comment on which one is better as it is impossible to predict that.
Can IMGs even get into PA programs? I have never seen a PA program which offers visa sponsorship. That being said, my experience is quite limited.


I am also applying to Masters in Public Health prog for this coming spring. Could any one please provide me with a sample LOR? I need them to complete my application.
