Hi guys, let me start out by saying that EVERYONE on this forum are the nicest people I've ever met online. We're all strangers yet we feel so much like a close medical profession family. Here is the deal guys, I shadowed a podiatrist today and I saw a lot of ingrown nailes, and diabetic feet, one fungus.. They all seemed very interesting but i can't get over the smell? Do you guys think that eventually we'll get use to the smell? I feel a little bit gross about working with the feet as of right now but dont get me wrong I would love to help these people out w/ their problems just that i dont know if you guys all started out like me or not. Please i need some feedback. 1)Did you ever feel gross? 2)How did you get over it? 3)Do you feel like you're just a high paid pedicurist? Also I was talking about jobs wise w/ my podiatrist and he said it take a couple of years to land on your feet ( hahah funny about the feet part) anyway I was wondering what you guys know about the jobs wise and solo vs. group and advantages/disadvantages. My last question is that if one decided to transfer from pod school to DO/MD schools. Is that possible later on during the road? and if so is that hard? and also I want to do mostly the surgical parts of podiatry and my podiatrist said that's not usually the case. He said one doesn't usually do a lot of surgercal procedures. He said most of the time is just cleaning the feet.
