sorry if im posting this again, my internet is going wierd. For MDs, general surgery isnt particularly hard to get into (just cant be last in your class). But to get into an academia residency, you gotta be real good. Now, i was just wondering how competitive it is to get into any OMFS prog. ANd then how difficult is it to get into an MD OMFS prog. Do these two correlate with the above two examples? Lastly, for the people who are in residency for an MD/DDS prog, why didnt you pursue medicine from the beginning? Any specific reasons would help. Im trying to figure this out myself.
