    Are there any Osteopathic programs out there that give any extra emphasis on going into surgery? From what I gather, osteopathic programs seem to focus pretty extensively on primary care. This is great! Because as of right now, I would love to see myself as a family prac. But what if I change my mind sometime during my medical training? Being in a DO program that targets primary care wouldn't hurt me...would it??
    I'm going to the Osteopathic Medicine Awareness Conference at COMP this weekend, and I'm sure that I will get some invaluable info on this topic there. I was just curious to hear what you guys/gals think.

    Spyder - No need to post your question on multiple forums. Most of us read all of them (and have answered your query where posted elsewhere). [​IMG]

    Spyder,

    While I'm not familiar with any specific schools with programs that emphasize surgery, if you're interested in doing something outside of the GP specialties (FP, Internal Med, Peds, OB/GYN), when choosing schools to apply to I suggest you look at the types of residencies students from those schools typically match to. Most schools publish data about what their students do after graduation...if you are interested in keeping your options open, apply to schools that have a more-diverse match list.

    Good luck to you.
