The DO students who go to ophthalmology specialize in the eye forever. The ones who go into ortho specialize in the knee and shoulder forever. The ones who go into gastroenterology specialize in the GI forever. The ones who go into pulmonology specialist in the lungs forever. The ones who go into cardiology specialize in the heart forever.Even with a withdrawal, it will be challenging to explain your situation to the admissions committee. I am not saying there is no chance for an interview, but you should speak to a program advisor directly then decide on applying or not.
The other issue is why you, a past DO student, would want to apply to a Pod program. Yeah, the curriculum is similar but you will be specializing in the lower extremity forever. Are you okay with that? Instead, it would be best to look into the RN/PA programs so that you are not limited to one area. These programs are also less strict about past academic history.
Lol, so the lower extremities interest me so i wouldn’t mind specialize in the lower extremities …. Forever. Lol
