Probably depends on the school. At my school, having a parent who went there for med school gives you a decent boost, but that's not quite the same as your situation. I'd say it may help you, but any advantage would be very minimal.

One of my parents works for my State MD's hospital system, and I'm an alumni from the same university system UG. Does this bear weight with Adcoms for my app?

Those ties won't matter. If you present as male, you should wear a tie. /thread
