    Podiatry vs carrib MD

    hello, i am sort of confused. I was granted an interview with a podiatry school, but was already accepted to a few carrib schools. I am wondering if i should spend the time and money to go the interview or just stick with a M.D. from the carrib.

    thanks guys

    Just think about it, the more podiatrists out there, the more competition he faces, the less dough he gets, simple economics.

    this is a very informative thread. Are carribean med schools really looked down upon that much, even a school as well known as SGU.

    Depends, some states still do, other don't. It varies. my opinion, if you graduated, passed the boards and did residency with positive recommendations, then there is no difference.

    quite frankly its not wheter you like feet or not. its still a body part isnt it?pods are like any doctors. they just specialize in feet and want to help people isnt that the whole point of being a physician? or is it all about prestige and having a badge with a few letters next to your name. who cares if you get looked down upon. i know very succesful Dpm's who work with MD's and they get along just great.

    I know this is an old thread but I feel compelled to respond because I was on this same boat recently.

    People who keeps gripping about the fact that am MD/DO is a compete doctor who can treat the whole body while a DPM can only do lower extremity...

    Wow, get your facts straight! YES, legally, a MD/DO can treat the whole body but how many MD/DO that isn't a PCP treat the whole body? Do you think a surgeon would admit someone who had a cold? And yes, even if legally, you are allowed to treat something outside of your specialty, would you? NO! Ever heard of lawsuits? You think a Ortho surgeon specializing in the spinal cord would do a hammertoe, just because he did a 6 week ankle/foot rotation a couple years ago? People need to grow up and get real with how it works in the real world.
