Seriously, every time I come in here, there is some lame DO related question that puts DO's on the defense. Can we get a little more creative? And moderators, if people are asking these same questions, can you close them and politely ask them to do a search because those topics have been debated ad nauseum. Here are some of the most annoying questions that get asked at least monthly if not weekly.. 1.) Can DO's specialize? 2.) Can I work in a large city as a DO? 3.) Are DO's medical doctors? 4.) My "so and so" got into a DO school, should she attend or wait and reapply to an MD school." 5.) Why do DO's have lower entrance stats? 6.) Did you choose DO over MD? 7.) Have you ever been told you were mistreated because you were a DO? 8.) Have you ever been denied residency because you were a DO? 9.) What do MD's think of DO? 10.) Should DO's change their initials? I don't have a problem with students genuinely seeking advice on these issues but someone should just direct them to old threads. There is no point to rehash these threads and start a huge flame every single time.
