I was telling him what I think my options are (DO vs DPM vs SMP). I told him how I really want to get into ortho surgery and I would probably have a better chance getting into that type of surgery by going DPM. He agreed with me. However the one thing he told me is that he went into DO school wanting ortho surgery and now he wants neuro surgery. He said the one thing about pod school is that it cuts out ur options and you wont be able to changeur specialty half way through. My question I guess is, for those of you who decided on getting the DPM over DO/MD, how did you know you wouldn't change your mind once u were in pod school?
Shadowed multiple specialties to figure out what I wanted. No regrets here.
