    Chiropractor to MD or DO with a family

    Any Chiropractors going back to med school with a family, how do you do it? Most of us are no longer 20. I am 33, married with children. How do you go back to med school, or go to med school in the Caribbean with a family? Did you move your family to the Caribbean? What are the hours like? What about family time? Is there any? My oldest is 10. He'll be 18 when I am done with med school and residency. What kind of hours will I work during those? Any help, thoughts and experiences would be appreciated. Thanks

    drrone,
    I am looking at making the same leap you have and I commend you upon having the constitution to do it. Did you find the academic transition hard? What state did you practice in?

    DC to MD option ??

    Just wondering, for the DC / MDs out there ? how do you compare the DC Program in the US vs the MD program in the Caribbean ??

    I heard from few of my classmates that DC schools are now very high tech, some affiliated with hospitals, have MRI on campus, anatomy labs, that are better than most carib MD schools ??

    Also, as a DC, MD will you still practice as a Chiropractor ? offer spinal exams / manipulations ? therapy ?? or just work as an MD ??

    Cheers,

    Cheers,

    I can tell you that I breezed through chiro school and had a great time there. However, my experience during my Carib MD time was no where the same. I had to study, a lot... and pulled all night sessions during exams. I will say that I made better grades in med school than chiro school. However, there is really no comparison, except for maybe anatomy. In chiro school, we did anatomy over 3 semesters, in med school... 1 semester. Everything was a lot more condensed in med school, plus the depth of information (and volume) where leaps and bounds more than chiro school.

    I do plan on still practicing chiro with medicine.

    I agree completely. The Chiro boards were a farce and I never had any difficulty with any subjects. I went to a chiro school with a strong science foundation, so I have no idea about the more philosophically based schools. I haven't had issues in MD school, but there is a tremendous amount of material in much less time.

    You just posted a good question. I know a couple of guys who are both MD/DC and they combine both practices with pain management, etc. Not a bad gig.

    Sorry, I missed your question. The transition so far is fine. I did well in Chiro school, but I only put in minimal effort. I am doing very well in MD school, but I put more effort (but not too much, I still have a lot of free time). Although, I am more mature now and take learning seriously. I love learning and to be honest I probably would have gone straight into MD school after DC school, if finances hadn't been an issue. I highly recommend it.

    I practiced in AZ for 8 years.

    Chiropractor / Chiropractic Care

    Become a chiropractor , or dont be a chiropractor. But make your decision o what yo believe in ad want to do,not the hours needed,or the cost, or how much you will make. I am a chiropractor, and I love what I do. But the choice is up to you.

    OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE IS A GOOD OPTION FOR YOU
    Maybe you can get some advance standing, or even if you can't DO is a good option for you....
    Also, check DPM and DDS programs for IMGs, I know some schools will allow you to enter as an MD from the 3rd Year.
