Ok well tonite me and some buddies were out on study dates with orgo kim and i asked them if you dont make it to med school would you apply to a DO school. well one of my friends was like i would reapply the following year, and keep trying. some of my other friends were like no, and would just give up on the med school thing. NOW before i go any further i do not see MDs and DOs differently. My physician back home is a DO, so im not trying to belittle anyone or any medical ideology. Now i was thinking well if these people want to become dr.s why would they not apply to do school or are people just wanting md because of the name and prestige it carries? i know common perception among alot of uneducated people is DOs are secondary to MDs, which is BS. i think if you really want to be a dr. and cant get into a MD med school, then DO is a legit way to go, i mean MD and DO do the same thing as far as patient care (im not talkign about specialties). If you really want "to help people" and cant get into md why not go do? Im sure this MD vs DO conversation has shown up a billion times before, but im just wondering what everyone else would do? Would you go DO, i mean personally i think DOs are more dedicated to being doctors because they have to put up with more peoples **** about their degree then mds do?
