A not-yet-in-med-school planning question: I'm interested in going into pathology (forensic pathology, to be specific). I also find the concepts of DO to be intriguing. Does it make sense to attend/apply to a DO school when I ultimately want to do forensic pathology? I only wonder as DO schools seem to focus on primary care. Would they look at me like I'm crazy if I apply to DO and tell then I want to specialize? Would I get laughed at when trying for my residency in pathology with a DO instead of an MD? I know they say that DO's go into all specialities, but I have yet to see a DO school or info blurb mention pathology specifically. And in a contact list of forensic path. fellowship programs, none of the docs listed had a DO.
