Hi, I apologize in advance if my question is not exactly topic specific. I have an acceptance into a DO med school and a UK (allopathic med school). I am very happy with both choices, but I want to base my final decision based on the type of residency match each route offers/limits. I was pretty much confirmed to go to the DO program because of its reputatioon and its proximity to my social support system, but one of my co-workers told me to consider foreign MD only because DO's dont usually match into surgical specialties. I know this sounds a bit stretched, but given the situation, I just wanted to see what some other folks on SDN had to say about this considering most of you have already been though this process. Any help and guidance will be greatly appreciated.
