Hey guys... So I went to an interview at my state school here recently, and we started talking about their MD/PHD program and they said that the program was pretty 'flexible' in that you could basically decide to enter it at any time. Students typically entered after first two years, but could enter even after the 3rd year.... This really interests me b/c I am interested in research and academic medicine and I feel like this sort of program might help me career-wise (applying to residency, getting academic jobs in future, etc.) The program includes a full stipend for the two research years (not mstp, obviously)... Anyways, is this pretty much the 'norm', or is it an exception? Any thoughts? Am I totally off-base here? Thanks!
