This may be a little premature as I haven't been admitted to a D.O. school yet, but I was wondering what is the policy of most D.O. schools on doing 4th year electives. I am interested in a particular IM residency program that allows 4th year med students to do elective rotations in their program. No doubt this is an excellent opportunity to make a good impression and get your foot in the door for the residency. I was just curious if D.O. schools allow this or are you required to do all of your electives at the hospitals designated by the school. By the way, the residency program is an allopathic program. Thanks.
