High [Chemistry] specialities for a Would-Be Medical Doctor?

     Hi, I am finishing up my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry this summer, and I have been accepted to medical school for the Fall 2012. Sadly, this school doesn't have a combined MD/Ph.D as I hoped for. My question is ...  Are there any specialities that require a great deal of chemistry in everyday life? My pull is toward something Biochemistry and/or Organic Chemistry related.  I don't know... Any advice, thoughts??? Is getting a PH.d after my MD, and going into a career as a medical research on the side ---> a good idea?

 

Thanks in advance,

Jessica Heston
