I apologize if this is a repeat thread! I think I've come to the decision that come application time next summer, I'll apply to both M.D. and D.O. schools. However, I'm not sure whether this is a good idea simply because I have no interest in the osteopathic side of medicine. I don't mean that in a bad way, just a true way. I see both paths as equal and equivalent ways to becoming a knowledgeable physician. However, assuming that I might actually get an interview with a D.O. school, would I just get screened out as soon as they realized I'm not very passionate about the OMM principles and how they apply to medicine? On the same note, are applicants like myself looked down on by other D.O. applicants as taking the seat of a student who actually loved the D.O. approach to medicine? Just curious, thanks for any opinions.
