    Hello everyone, I am new to this site and to the review of DO schools. I am kind of curious about how Emergency Medicine residencies rate on competitiveness for DO's.

    Does anyone have any insight they would like to offer.

    Sheon,

    Emergency medicine seems to be a niche for DOs. One of my interviewers at COMP (in California) spoke of a student of his who is a resident at Yale Medical School in EM. From what I've heard, DOs can hold their own in this very competitive specialty.

    Sheon,

    What Edgar has said seems to be true. I have an interest in Emergency Med, so I have looked at a number of residency programs on the internet. The majority of allopathic programs I have looked at either have D.O. faculty members and/or current D.O. residents. We seem to be well represented in this specialty. In addition to Yale, there is currently a 3rd year D.O. resident (UHS grad) in Johns Hopkins' EM program. I'd say we're holding our own!

    Apparently the chief of emergency medicine at Cook County in Chicago is a DO.

    I just looked at Cook County's web site. No DO's found in the emergency dept. Then again, it was faculty, not staff. Maybe it's just out of date. Just a note.
