Here is the meaning of MD MPH.

MD=Medical Doctor

As propostas anteriores estão correctas, Em traduções, como a designação é característica do país de origem da língua e não é adequado traduzir-se Medical Doctor nem M.Ph. Quando muito poderá ser dito "o médico Dr. fulnano, MPh", deixando estas últimas iniciais como estão.
Boa sorte
