Hello to all of you DO residents. I am currently considering attending an osteopathic school over an allopathic school and have been researching the available residency programs. It seems as though there aren't as many osteo programs (in OB/GYN) in the NY/NJ/DC/CT area as I would have hoped. Although the number of osteopathic residency programs in these areas are scarce, what is the likelihood that I would be able to match in an allopathic program? Would I be required to take the USMLE 1 for the allopathic match? Do you think that I should attend an allopathic school (over a DO school) if given the opportunity to increase my liklihood of placing in a residency program in these areas? In addition, if I was to try and match in both a DO and allopathic program, how does the process work? I would appreciate any info you can provide since I am clueless and just starting out in my medical career.
