    MD and DO

    Can one be a doctor as a DO and an MD? I used to have this professor that went on and on about how a student of his was a doctor of both osteopathy and medicine.

    Personal Statement

    I decided to apply to DO schools for this cycle even though it is pretty late. I made a personal statement, but honestly I am a terrible writer, and I was looking to see if anyone could edit and go through it . Thanks for any help

    Is it significantly harder for EM Residency with DO?
