Where is everyone that is applying MD/PhD for 2002 going to apply? My top programs are: UIUC Medical Scholars Program UNC Chapel Hill MD/PhD program (#1 in Analytical Chemistry nationwide) U of Iowa MD/PhD program I don't know of any others that offer the PhD in alternate fields (ie. Physio, Biochem, Anat etc.) Does anybody else know of programs that offer the PhD in Chemistry? Neuroscience is OK too. I'm also applying to the usual bunch of schools that I would attend regular MD, and pursue my PhD independently after I'm done. Like Rush, Loyola, etc. My friend in the MSP at UIUC says that research experience is the key to landing an interview and close look, how true this is I don't know. Any other admitted students want to vouch for that?
