I recently have been accepted to both PCOM and Touro MI, and due to my husband's situation am really thinking about accepting MI. Here is my question though. My husband is going to grad school and will have about 120 k in debt when he graduates. With the cost of my undergrad and med school loans, we are looking at owing about 350-400K when I graduate. For this reason, I am really considering Nurse practitioners, as it is less time (2-3 yrs) and we won't be so indebted. But I was wondering if anyone knows how much psychiatrists make annually. Also, do DO's get paid less than MDs? I'm curious b/c even though I like the DO philosophy, I really dont know if I can afford med school. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
