    After drooling over the various lists of allopathic residencies and their facilities I have a simple question...any chance for a D.O. student to get into an allopathic residency? :confused:

    Thanks

    Yeah, their is a list of us in the "rotations and residencies" forum. Myself and many others are DO's who matched allopathic. This included EM, surgery, IM, FP, OBGYN, Rads, PM&R, and Anesthesiology.

    one of the things you should make sure you obtain when you interview at any medical school, do or md, is a list of the most recent graduating class' match list.

    According to page 158 of the March 2002 JAOA, "Close to 30% of osteopathic medical graduates enter allopathic programs in their first year - and most osteopathic medical residents are in allopathic programs." I recommend you read the article; it is pretty informative.
