Hi!
I have my goal set at becoming an Reproductive Endocrinologist(RE).

Have you heard anybody becoming RE with a DO degree? Or, do you absolutely have to become an MD?

Going off of tHe original post a bit, is there anti-DO bias in fellowship match?

Yea, kind of, but how much depends on what fellowship you apply for. Around 66% of DOs that apply for acgme cardiology and hem/onc match but only 33% match GI.

PDF page 9 gives you some idea, at at least for IM fellowships http://b83c73bcf0e7ca356c80-e8560f466940e4ec38ed51af32994bc6.r6.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/chartingoutcomessms2011.pdf

Likewise with any doctor, gaining a Bachelor's Degree is the initial phase in the instructive trip. In spite of the fact that there is no required significant, future fertility specialists should enroll in a in a pre-med program or make certain to take the essential courses that most therapeutic schools require.
