I've been accepted at a small Medical School and have I have a strong chance of being accepted as an MD/PhD candidate at that institution. Some people are telling me to go for it, others are saying I shouldn't waste my time in attaining the PhD. I don't plan to do only research for a living, as I plan to see patients. But I would like to be involved in some research, and eventually work my way into becoming a program director at a research institution or even as a hospital administrator. I could also see myself working with the University as Dean or something like that. Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts about this???
