Just wondering if physician ortho groups prefer to hire MDs over DOs or DOs that trained in AGME residencies versus OGME residencies. Or are there physician ortho groups that tend to be all MDs and others that are all DOs?

I agree, I too would like to know about employment for DO ortho surgeons...

What a worthless response. Unless you have data to present or something valuable aside this stupid comment (and it'd be the same if you said there's no difference) you are just a massive troll.

Out in the real world it doesn't matter. There are some DO only ortho groups because they know each other or did some training together. As you get further from medical school the DO/MD thing gets less and less. The number of DO orthopaedic surgeons is very small compared to the MD, so as long as you do a residency, are BE/BC, you will have ample job opportunities.

Thanks...but what is BE/BC?
