  1. Pre-Medical

I am a graduate student applying to medical school next cycle. I completed biomedical research as an undergraduate for two years(with poster and presentation), but have a strong interest in bioethics and medical humanities. I have ample experience/leadership in programs that address healthcare disparities and equity.

I've been researching MD/PhD for quite some time and recently found out, many schools offer graduate programs in the social sciences/humanities for the PhD degree. I would like to know how are applicants accessed for MD/PhD programs? Do you indicate which graduate program you're interested in and assessed that way? Also, will this hinder my chances of acceptance for MD schools(since my applications will be submitted after)?
