Is California Pacific University a diploma mill? I realize it is state-approved, non-RA accredited. Is there any value in one of their degrees? I am a physician with interest in administration/management. I have found that patients generally are turned off by physicians with MBA's. I have no intention of abandoning clinical practice. I was thinking of doing certificate courses or an MPH but considering that a higher degree is not necessary to be in administration, and the high cost of the programs, I am considering other options. The CPU Ph.D. in Management interested me because it provides me with some courses, I will do a dissertation, and it has a reasonable price. If I am always honest in my CV (distance learning, Califronia approved, non-regionally accredited) is there value? Is there a problem with adding Ph.D. after my name? (I have traditional degrees in chemistry, psychology, and osteopathic medicine). R. Meek, D.O.
