I know this is a forum for M.D. applicants, but can someone tell me what the benefits for earning a Ph.d. would be in biology/biochemistry as opposed to an M.Sc.? Isn't the long postgraduate work a grueling endeavor?

A Ph.D. will give you many more options. If you're interested in teaching at a university, you have to have a Ph.D. to get hired.

If you're more interested in working in industry, an M.Sc. is good enough, bout you'll be paid less and if you get sick of working for a private company, you can't fall back to academia.

If I were you, I'd getta Ph.D. for sure. They're usually free (with assistantship), and it's only a few more years.
