Doctor Applying to Harvard Law...any others?

Postby Dr. C » Thu Oct 03, 2013 8:10 pm

I'm a public health physician, and I'm applying to Harvard Law this fall. I'm curious...are there any other physicians enrolled in the law school right now? I know it is unusual, but I can't imagine I'm the only one pursuing a joint career in law and medicine. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks.

I am sure there are other people. This firm always looks for JD/MDs, and a lot of their partners seem to be JD/MD.

Having said that, I know of no one at my school.

I don't know of any... several PhDs but no MDs that I'm aware of.

We have three (former) doctors at my school.

One of my classmates is actively practicing medicine while doing law school part-time.
