I'm getting ready to apply to medical schools. I also has an interest in research. I'm wondering what is the knowledge difference of an M.S (biomedical sciences) / M.D, vs just an M.D. is its a difference of laboratory techniques? Perhaps some statistics?

Neither would be in a position to write grants for themselves (although I understand that you could), but is there a real benefit to getting your M.S?
