In my unbiased opinion...
Just kidding. DMU ALL THE WAY BABY!!
Really though, I had a tough time choosing between the 2 and honestly don't think you can go wrong either way. Just know, you will be miserable the rest of your life if you choose CCOM. I kid people, I kid.
Good luck to you!
Good stuff. But really, does anyone have an extensions to my +/- list? Also, which school might be a better spot for someone who wants to do IM then specialize from that? I have lots of personal +/-'s for each of these schools, but I'm wondering what you all think.
I know a gastro doc that works with students from CCOM. He is great. I really don't know a lot about DMU, but I live in Chicago and will be going to CCOM in July. The rotations are really great at CCOM as you know. I believe OMM is pretty good at CCOM as well. Were you able to see the OMM lab? I liked it, it was nice and roomy, very comfortable.
Students at both schools seem very happy with the decision that they made, so I do not think you would go wrong wither way.
I did see the OMM lab and it seemed a bit nicer than DMUs. They also had 7 (right?) OMM fellows where DMU had 3. CCOMs lab had TVs near every station but it sounded like DMU had lots of TAs so you almost always had a 3rd person at your table. I've also continually heard that DMU has a very strong OMM program.
