    How do I become a PM&R Doctor?

    Hello! I am an incoming OMS-1 who is leaning heavily towards PM&R. I am starting med school soon and could use some wisdom as my biggest fear is going unmatched, so I am trying to get a head start on this. I am attending MSUCOM which has it's own AOA recognized PM&R program and a lot of...

    Should DO take USMLE 1 & 2 or is STEP 1 no longer needed (so STEP 2 only) as it is P/F?

    The specialty I want is not very competitive (PM&R or Community Neuro) so I am just wondering how many board exams I will have to take? Would applying with a P on COMELX 1 and a STEP 2 and COMLEX score be enough or will programs require I take get a P on STEP 1 as well as a STEP 2 score?

    What sub-I to pick for PM&R?

    My school offers sub-I's in IM, peds, obgyn, surgery, psychiatry, family medicine. I am deciding between IM or peds.

    So in my personal statement I talk about my interest in neurology and PM&R, due to being helped out so much in my life by these doctors, and how I think the mindset of a DO and OMM training can be a great asset for these specialties. I do not say these are the only specialties I am considering...
