I listened over the weekend to a podcast produced by the AAMC and posted at AspiringDocs.com. In this Meet the Experts segment, David Engman, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Medical Scientist Training Program at Northwestern University School of Medicine, and Kerry O’Banion, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of Rochester explore the benefits of pursuing both the M.D. and the Ph.D.
I found it to be an interesting show. If you are curious about the medical scientist route and how the training from one discipline informs and complements the work of the other, listen to the podcast.
