To give some increased advertising for my own school,Washington 
University in St. Louis,  I thought I would mention our program in 
Philosophy/Neuroscience/Psychology, run mostly by the Philosophy 
department.  There is a monthly discussion group plus a seminar series 
devoted to questions which cross the boundaries of these areas.  Combined 
with the strong MD/PhD and straight PhD programs offered here, it's 
probably worth considering.
	Just to put in my two cents worth about MD vs PhD vs MD/PhD - 
while many MDs become excellent researchers, I have known of many who 
would have benefitted from especially the close mentoring relationship 
established during graduate school.  I don't happen to think an MD is 
_necessary_ for getting a research job, and I also don't think it's quite 
as hard to get in to an MD/PhD program as some have described.

Good luck deciding, Tom!
