Returning to School

Hello All,
I have been pondering of returning to schoolto pursue an M.D. I
a Ph.D. in biochemistry 6 years ago and have been working in industry
since. Although I enjoy my work, I believe that I would be more
challenged by
a career in a more clinically related area. I am thinking of applying
medical school with the final goal of clinical research and practice.
So I am asking for comments about several areas:

1) What are the issues (as you see them) for a 37 yr. old woman who
wants to go to Medical school? (I have a very supportive family) 
2) Any general suggestions as to which schools might be interesting?
3) Does anyone know of any fellowships for Ph.D.'s returning for more
4) Any advice of a general nature?

Thanks for your comments.
Leslie Dow
