[quote]Got proof? MDs are fo sho greedy. Look at all the ones who push a pharma drug patients dont need. Far worse imo.[/quote] This is ridiculous. Big pharma?? It is the opposite.

[quote]In the best interest of the patient? Yeah right. That's the reason ophthalmologists are challenging this. Get real. Let the patient decide.

[quote]The MD route offers less time on the eye during school but more during residency than the others get during school. The OD route offers more time during the original 4 years in eye clinics with little to no surgical training, and less likely any sort of fellowship in any certain part of the e...

Dentistry doesn't really have competition like ODs/MDs. Anyone who wants to work on teeth goes to dental school. If you want to do surgery from there, you do OMFS training. Podiatry has some competition with orthopods but in general orthopods have many other aspects of the body to operate. ...
