    Just wondering if any DO students/residents know if you do an MD neuro program, are you likely to be eligible for the Resolution 19/42 rule because of a lack of DO neuro programs (I think there are like 5 total). Thanks -

    Basically you can't practice in 5 states without the DO internship. WIth that resolution, this rule is waived and you are allowed to practice in those states. Here is the site:

    Also do you know what are average USMLE scores for MD residencies in neuro? Thanks -
