Hi, I was wondering what's the point of having many affiliated hospitals with a certain medical school, when you can apply for any residency spot? Let's say my DO medical school dosen't have derm resideny. Does that mean I'm forever resitricted from getting into dermatology? Do students in schools where they have those affiliated hopstals with certain programs of residency, have better chance of getting in? I have to select a school to attend, but i can't decide. What is the most important factor for selecting a med school? Residency opportunity, or prestige or quality or education? Thank you for your help, for i'm in a great need of it.
