I am a DO with a 238 step 1 and a 644 COMLEX 1. I've been interested in internal medicine and possibly some fellowships within IM. Honestly though, I haven't given it much thought and I'm sure third year will give me a much better idea.

With my board scores, what particular fields are out? I don't mean troll, I know these are decent scores, but as a DO with only a slightly above average step I know there are fields that will be out of reach. If I do become interested in something more competitive than IM, will my COMLEX suffice for most specialties within the AOA?

Thanks in advance.
