I appreciate the info from the last thread I posted. You have all been a big help. I had one more question. Do you think it's better to do research with a PHD or an MD? Would a letter of rec for Ophthalmology research look just as good coming from a PHD as from an MD? The reason I ask is that I do research with a PHD, and someone mentioned to me that it might be in my best interest to go do research with an MD.
