Someone recently told me that there are some allopathic specialty board which will not grant board certification to DOs who have finished an MD residency. For instance, you do a surgery residency at an allopathic program, but the allopathic specialty board will not grant you board certification because you are a DO. By the same token, the osteopathic surgery board will not grant you board certification because you did not do an AOA approved residency. Bottom libe, you are not board certifiable. Anybody knows if this is a rumor or if it is true? If it is true, are there other specialties with the same problem? I know for sure that this is not the case with FP or IM, but what about other specialty boards?
