    DO Stigma in residency/fellowship

    1st year DO student. I was well aware that DO students are at a disadvantage but I did not realize how profound the stigma against DO was in competitive IM residencies and fellowship. I've seen post where DO students scored 240-260 USMLE Step1, but still had trouble matching into MD...

    Is the DO degree relevant anymore?

    Hi all! I am going into medicine, and like all med students, I am concerned about matching. Given the recent residency merger and the indistinguishable curriculum of MD/DO schools (with the exception of the added OMM) I was wondering why there is so much resistance from the AOA to change the...

    Other Preventive Medicine Residencies for Osteopathic Grads?

    Does anyone here know if being a DO rather than an MD would hinder your chances in securing a resident position? What's the general level of competition in attaining this residency? Thanks in advance.

    Specific questions regarding a DO-PhD for neuro

    I've browsed through a lot of the threads on the differences between a DO and an MD, why anyone would ever want to do a DO-PhD instead of an MD-PhD, why you would even bother with the PhD when as a physician you can do academic research anyways, etc...And I don't feel like my questions have been...

    HPSP as a DO

    Re-posting this in Military Medicine: I'm looking for some insight into military medicine as a DO vs. MD. My understanding is that the two are virtually indistinguishable to the military, but I'm curious: 1) Are any residencies in the military less friendly to DOs (in general or compared to...

    DO derm residency/TRI options

    So with having to apply to derm as a PGY1, it seems like the options are very limited if you don't end up matching. Does anyone know, can you only scramble into other PGY2 positions that also require a TRI (rads, pm&r, etc)? Or could you scramble, for example, into a PGY2 family medicine position?
