SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm a fourth year DO student and I'm planning on going into Family Practice. I'm having difficulty with the decision of going with the AOA vs the AMA match. My understanding is that I pretty much have to choose one or the other. I'm interested in programs like UCLA and UCI, but I'm not sure how great my chances are there. If I forgo the AOA match can I later jump in and scramble if need be? Any info regarding family medicine at the UC schools would be helpful. How DO friendly are they?
