SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I've always heard that PMR was a DO friendly specialty, but I've also heard that you have way more opportunities in PMR as an MD. I'm applying to both MD and DO schools this summer, but I don't know which way to lean. I feel like the DO skillset would be good to have for PMR. Then again, plenty of MDs are in PMR and you all seem to do just fine. I know I'm a very hands-on kind of individual and I want to make extensive use of physical exams. What do you all think? Do PMR residencies stress being hands-on? Do you learn some OMM? Let me know, folks! I'm very interested in this field!
