Resident [Any Field]
I have applied to both MD and DO schools and know that MD usually has a better chance at good surg residencies, but right now the choices I have to choose from are several DO med schools. I am trying to figure out which one would be the best for the surgical residencies I want to get into later. The possible schols are : PCOM, KCOM, KCUMB, AZCOM, and DMU. From the research I have done all of them are good schools so I am just trying to figure out which ones would be best for getting into a surgical residency after graduation. Specifically Neuro, Ortho, Plastics, or General Surgery. I have looked at the match lists, except for PCOM, but they only show numbers of people who went to each specialty. I couldn't really see a big difference?? Are there any differences? Or does it not matter?

Any MD or DO surgeons out there that could help out with this??

Thanks :)
