Question special

Many physicians (MD-only) are expert clinicians without pursuing an additional degree. Pursuing a dual degree in undergraduate medical education requires time and effort that may otherwise be allocated to the MD curriculum. However, there may be benefits to the dual degree to clinical practice, given the overlapping nature and widespread importance of healthcare as an industry.
- What are some reasons for future physicians who intend to practice solely as clinicians to consider a dual degree program?
- How can medical schools better accommodate students' variegated interests in medicine to encourage exploration of dual degree offerings prior to matriculation and as a current student?
