I've submitted secondaries to many DO schools (8 complete) already and am still waiting for secondaries from others (6 more). Some of those submitted applications are currently ready for review. I mentioned shadowing (even just briefly) in ALL of my DO secondaries, and in several secondaries I've gone into detail (ex. Why osteopathic medicine? experience with osteopathic medicine? etc.) However, the problem is that I did not include shadowing on my AACOMAS primary, although I've done a fair share of shadowing in my time. I know - I was stupid, yes - but I thought DO schools would want me to list more hands-on activities, where I've made my biggest impacts. In a way I thought shadowing was implied. I did include my healthcare experience as a CPR-certified EMS member as well as 5 other ECs. Would any of you suggest calling the DO schools I've finished applying to, and mention that along with what I wrote on my secondaries about shadowing, that I've definitely shadowed DO physicians (as well as MD). Or - will this simply not work? Thanks!
