Anyone know about MD programs for PhDs?

	I am wondering what the motivation is for a PhD to go to
medical school... if it is to obtain an MD in order to practice
medicine there is only one route-- go through the normal medical
school training and then a residency and possibly a fellowship in
your selected speciality.  If it is to put more letters behind
your name... why bother-- an MD is not necessary in order to do
biomedical research, although a RESEARCH fellowship would be
helpful, if not necessary.
