    There is no school in the world that will take podiatry courses because podiatry school is not medical school. I attended both and there is a huge diffrence in the basic science Huuuuuuuuuuuge!!!!!!!!!

    Scholls podiatry school

    I once considered podiatry as a future career. I even went so far as interviewing at podiatry schools. At Scholl's school of podiatry at Finch they told us that the upcoming year (fall, 2003) would be fully integrated with their M.D. program. This meant that for the first 2 years, they would be in the same classes as the M.D. students. So, I do not think that it can be that much different since the students all students, M.D. or D.P.M. are taking the same pre-clinical classes.

    The unfortunate thing is that the podiatry students end up as D.P.M. after all that hard work

    Not true. There are schools in the Caribbean who offer advance standing to health care professionals such as DPMs and DCs.

    take a look at this thread on SDN:

    MD for DPMs

    That is a false statement, podiatrists in the US obtain very similar training in basic sciences as MDs, it is in the clinical years 3rd and 4th that the focus is mainly towards the knee down.....
    http://www.aacpm.org/

    Same applies to DDS, DCs, and DOs.......I reviewed numerous school's catalogs, and there is a tremendus overlap in education specifically in the basic sciences.....Anatomy is Anatomy.....it does not change if you attend a DPM school or a Medical school......

    Many Podiatry school's faculty members in basic sciences are PhDs, MDs or DPMs.....

    Accepted Degree

    That is true of you obtained your degree via quickie diploma mill....
    If you attend a reputable university, that would issue you equivalancy exams based on course taken previously, you can skip the first year and attend 3 years of medical school......
    Best place to check is the AAMC Website, or contact the AAMC.......I know several schools in the US that would issue transfer credits of up to 2 years if you are a DDS, and OMS.....trained in the US.....Not sure about DPMs or other professions......I will have to check on that.......

    catalogs?

    course catalogs are one thing, course content aree another. ask any DC pod, dentist, nurse, emt that has gone to med school, iv'e had several in my class and all agree that some courses were similar..meaning anatomy some phys, micro, and maybe path but the depth was far greater in med school because that is our focus.

    i doubt course catalogs can give an understanding of the course content even with the paragraph long description. if chiro dds, and pod school were so similar then those students would breeze through basic sciences and that is just not the case...most had just as difficult time with the courses and received similar grades.

    you can't compare the professions and write them off as being the same, they all focus on different aspects and touch only lightly on the other fields...

    i.e. i learned foot ankle mouth anatomy, tooth embryology, and the related pathology very superficially, because that is not the focus of my future practice any more than a dentist needs to learn how to grade a liver lac, or how the status epelipticus pathway.
