What do you like most?

"My favorite thing about WesternU's College of Podiatric Medicine is that fact that we are 93% incorporated with our D.O. counterparts. Because of this we are receiving that exact same education as they are. WesternU's philosophy is physician first then specialist!" Report Response

What do you like least?

"Because we're so incorporated with our D.O. counterparts, we (podiatry students) are sometimes forgotten about because there are only 50 of us students compared to the 350 D.O. students." Report Response
