DO for ophtho
09-30-2003, 12:41 AM
I am in the process of applying for PGY-2 ophtho spots through the SF match. I applied to programs in both michigan and PA which require a DO internship year to become licensed. Does this mean I could not complete an allopathic transitional year and complete a residency in these programs? Also, I know there is some kind of issue with funding if one chooses to do a DO internship and then apply for an allopathic residency.......something about the last year of residency may not be funded? Can anyone shed some light on these issues?
