SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I have recently become interested in prosthetics and artificial organs, and tissue engineering, and I want to pick a major that will allow me to do research in this field after I become a doctor. Most of the people I have talked to suggest I do a Biomedical Engineering degree, but there is no such program at my school. However, there is a Biomedical Physics program, which I am considering switching my major into, as I have a lot of the classes done as a Premed track. To those who know, what is the difference between these two majors (like what they study, etc.) and is it possible for me to go into a MD/MS or MD/PhD program in Biomedical Engineering with a degree in Biomedical Physics?
