Which are the more research-oriented BS/MD programs out there?

<p>I'm going to become a physician when I grow up. But I love to research.</p>

<p>RPI/AMC advertises "physician scientists" and with their application, I feel I can relate to my passions to become a physician much more comfortably. I don't have to restrain my emphasis on research.</p>

<p>What other BS/MD programs are looking for people interested in Research?</p>

<p>If you are serious about research, you may be better off completing an undergrad degree as a regular pre-med, and then applying to M.D./Ph.D. programs.</p>

<p>I agree with Happymom. If you're hoping to do a lot of research, you'll probably want a MD/PhD, rather than just an MD, and it'd be quicker to get one in a combined program. Go where you want for college, keep your grades up and get good MCAT scores, and you'll have your choice of good programs.</p>

<p>12 years of education just doesn't seem to be worth it. My mom is an MD/PHD and her sole wish is for me not to repeat her life. I don't think I'll need that 4 years for say "more opportunities" when I know what I want to be as an adult. And what RMI/AMC is doing sounds exactly right: a physician that may do research on the side, most likely to improve procedures in his specialty. <something along the lines of that.</p>
