PhD vs MPH in global health

One of my dearest professors has recommended me to a global health professor in a great US university to pursue a Ph.D. in global health. And, the second professor also is inviting me to apply there. What is your opinion about a Ph.D. in global health? Do you think it is not a time-wasting process to follow global health in an academic setting? Some say, for global health, you should be in the playfield and not in the classrooms! What What do you think? Also what between Ph.D. and a MPH in global health? Please share your opinion; your thoughts are constructive for me.

The PhD is entirely what you make of it. Ensure that you are following your interests and your passions, while setting up jobs at the end of it. Be neither ashamed of nor constrained by a specific topic name, such as "global health".
I am a Professor at an Institute for Global Health https://www.ucl.ac.uk/global-health with a thriving PhD programme.

Hossein Akbarialiabad Yes, the same comments apply to disaster research and to disasters and health--which is exactly my position and my career! But the advice from Andrew Paul McKenzie Pegman is perfect. Do what works for you and make it work for others--exactly as with combining global health and disaster risk reduction.
