I have an MPH in Health Behavior and Health Education (the department is now just Health Behavior). I think Public Health Practice, Community Health, Health Behavior, and Health Ed are all pretty similar, and a good generalist MPH option. I've been working as a research manager/associate in a medical school for 6 years now, and my MPH definitely has helped. It wasn't required for the job, but definitely opened the door a little wider. I actually use a lot of concrete skills from the program on a regular basis. Most of the other health affairs research managers at my institution also have generalist MPH's. I know several physicians who have MPH's, and I think they are better providers for it. They are more apt to use evidence based medicine, and take a more holistic approach towards overall health.
