Majority of the basic sciences courses in the first two years of Podiatry school are pretty much same basic science courses taught in the first two years of MD/DO school. In fact, students at DMU and AZPOD sit in the same classroom as the DO students for the basic science courses in the first two years. In the General Anatomy and the Lower Extremity Anatomy Courses, the Podiatry Students are expected to do full cadaver dissections like any other MD/DO student would. Of course, a separate Lower Extremity Anatomy course is taken by DPM student only.cool_vkb said:Anatomy Dissections? Do we do in podiatric schools just as medical students do. and are all subjects like medical schools.
Totally agree with you, it is an honor to be able to dissect a human cadavermolldoll2010dpm said:You definately do dissecting on a cadaver! It's almost a reward after years of dissecting other animals, and maybe seeing a cadaver and poking at it. Even though I'm sure there are some undergrad schools that have way more money than my school did.

Are you a non-native English speaker? I've noticed on your posts, you seem to struggle with grammar. If you speak another language, what language do you speak?

In my undergrad we used cats from the humane society. While other private schools in the area were using cadavers.
Just think...in less than four weeks we will be cutting into some cadavers.
We got the priviledge of dissecting cadavers in my undergrad anatomy lab course Goodluck with POD school!molldoll2010dpm said:I'm actually excited for school to start!! I know school will be intense, but I might actually be less busy than I am now because I won't be working. I'm looking forward to my first slice into the cadaver!!!
