    DO = MD; both are physicians. The more important question you need to ask yourself is, "Can I be a radiologist." :smuggrin:

    Good luck. :thumbup:

    True that, Both Osteopathic and Allopathic students struggle for Radiology spots. I am not sure about the numbers, but proportionally, there might be more AOA radiology spots than AMA? Can anyone verify that?

    Cardiologists
    Dermatologists
    Endocrinologists
    Family practitioners
    Geriatricians
    Hospitalists
    Immunologists
    Neurosurgeons
    Opthalmologists
    Pediatricis
    Radiologists
    Surgeons
    Thoracic surgeons
    Urologists


    Thats a start. There are others

    Speaking of surgery, would you say that PCOM is the best Osteopathic School to go to if you want to pursue some sort of surgery speciality?

    PCOM has a strong tradition of generating specialist (not sure about strictly surgery though). Work your butt off at any school and you can become a surgeon. Just becuase you graduate from a particular school doesn't mean that PD's are going say, "we need this guy becuase he's from......." You still have to earn your spot. I would suggest talking to JP about this as he is not only from PCOM but just matched surgery.

    Thanks for responses. I really like the clinical exposure and other opportunities that PCOM provides its students. IF I get into PCOM and a Cali school I will PM you for details for sure:D

    So if there are D.O. doctors that can be cardiologists, radiologist, and etc. what is really the difference between a D.O. and an M.D.

    From most DO schools you would become a real doctor.

    But not from DCOM.

    I think they only offer a DC degree.
