Has anyone ever heard of a MD/PHD-(Excerise Physiology)? It would be sweet if there was such a program.

at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign the Medical Scholars Program will allow you to get your PhD in virtually any department. they have an excellent kinesiology dept at UIUC with much research in ex.phys. although its not a MSTP program, all the Md/PhDs are fully funded.

I think UPenn allows you to get a PhD in any PhD-granting department. I could be (and prolly am) wrong, so Neuronix would be the guy to answer that one.

Look for schools with physiology PhDs. That'll be pretty close if there are people doing 'systems physiology' kind of stuff.

I'm sorta talking out of my ass here, but these are my thoughts.

Supposedly they do, but it is fairly rare and they won't like it very much unless you can really convince them it's a good idea. If you could find some way to do it in a department like BE, I'd say you stand a somewhat better chance. On the other hand, once you're in, they're not going to throw you out. It's just a matter of getting yourself in...

My understanding is that the same is true for most programs that claim to be open to all sorts of ideas for the PhD.
