    Lets say I want to go to a certain school that offers both MD, MD PhD, and MD MBA programs; is it possible to apply to all 3 of these programs or can you only apply for one? If I don't get into combined MD/___ program(s) will I still be considered for the respective MD program alone?

    It may not be a bad idea to just pick MD/PhD or MD/MBA and go for it. If you don't get into the second degree program, some may still accept you MD only. Realistically, it would actually be best to decide what you want to apply to and only apply to that.

    You can also apply internally into their MD/PhD or MD/MBA programs as an MD only student (which is what I plan on doing). It seems like your interests are scattered. MD/PhD and MD/MBA programs have completely different goals in mind for its students.

    I'd say it's a lot easier to apply MD, then switch to MD/PhD or MD/MBA than to apply to all 3 at the same time. Most people are probably gonna wonder why you haven't made up your mind.
