    Podiatry vs carrib MD

    Advertisements



    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

    well....... you are comparing apples to oranges.

    a podiatrist is very much different than a doctor.
    do you like to treat feet or do you want to treat the whole person?

    podiatry

    there are DPM's trying desperately to get MD degrees since they find they are treated as para-professionals, not primary care providers and have to have an MD sign off for them in hospital surgical centers,etc. You'll end up with about as much debt and the inability to make enough to pay yourself out of debt.....

    You can't compare the two

    If you are truly interested in medicine then definately go the MD Carib route or the DO route.

    I know a lot of podiatrists that wish they had gone the other way.

    However, if Paris Hilton offers to pay for you to go through podiatry school and have you take care of her feet reconsider.

    Maybe she would pay for one of us to go to film school? I read her interview today in Rolling Stone Magazine....she is 'something' else...not to be missed.
