I'm going to be a sophomore next semester and am currently a bio major. However, I'm pretty sure that I want to apply to MD/PhD programs and do research. Would switching majors to biomedical engineering (BME) give me any more of an advantage at succeeding as a researcher than a standard bio major would with some research on the side? I'm not trying to imply that you can't do research if you aren't an engineer, but would some of the BME skills I pick up be useful to me, or do you think it's negligible and I should just go with what interests me more?
