Considering MD/JD dual degree? Any advice?

Sat May 21, 2016 7:02 am

Hello there! I'm new to this forum, but I've read many posts on here. I'll be a college junior starting this fall, and I've been thinking about my future in medicine. My dream career, I believe, is to be a forensic pathologist. I see myself wanting to possibly do work for the FBI one day and work primarily as a medical examiner or a pathologist in a hospital morgue. I want to work on murder cases, rape/molestation, child abuse, etc. I was wondering how beneficial a MD/JD joint degree would be considering those career goals. Thanks!
