I know this topic has been breached before. I am left with a few questions. Firstly, have some present DO students have any recommendations on who has good (purely AOA accredited) residencies? I remember "prefontaine" saying he was not impressed with the osteopathic hospitals in Michigan. My second question come from me reading about the different AOA opportunities. If an AOA program teaches its students in hospitals that primarily have ACGME residencies do you get a great education or the short end of the stick. For example, Sun Coast Hospital has a general surgery residency where the other two hospitals you go through are USF and Jackson Memorial. Also, POH has a neurosurgery program where years are spend at McGill University in Montreal, Canada (where no DO schools exist). Would these residencies parallel ACGME ones?
