SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Ever since I've decided to go into Podiatry my family and my sisters been looking at me like a im a F***ing failure when in fact the Pod. curriculum and study time is just as hard as MD from what i heard. The only reason why MD schools are harder to get into because it allow the invidual to have more options later on and therefore more popular. I've been talking with my podiatrist about orthopaedic surgeon that specialized on ankle and foot, and quite frankly I think that Podiatrist know A LOT MORE THAN THEY DO ON ABOUT THE FEET BUT PATIENTS NEVER GO TO PODIATRIST FIRST!!! It drives me insane when podiatrist can do so much for the patients but not many people acknowledge that... I just got off the phone w/ my sisters and she just made me feel so mad about the fact that podiatrist is THAT much easier when in fact from what i've heard it's NOT!!! Getting on a rollercoaster is easy but surviving the roller coaster is not always fun for some individual. That's exactly how it is w/ medicine. Except, for MD and DO they require more to get on the roller coaster. When it come down to it, It'S JUST A ROLLER COASTER. I would love to know you guys opinion on this matter.
