Does anyone know of precedent in pursuing dual degrees in such varying fields?
Or know of specific MD-PhD programs for it?
Has anyone out there done it?

Rochester has one, but they seem to be focusing on medical physics, not astronomy (but astronomy is part of their department so it might be a possibility). But I'm not sure how you plan to combine those fields for a job.

Awesome! Thanks for the link. The only intellectual response I can think of is, "Job shmob!"

Harvard / MIT has a Health Science and Technology degree which gets you a dual Ph.D/MD.

I know someone with a British D. Phil., a MD, a Ph.D from HST, and then an MBA that she got later.

Hopefully I shant hijack your thread, but what is it you're looking to get out of your degree? An answer might allow for further responses - i.e. what fields is it you're interested in combining and why?
