    I am just curious as to whether the prerequisites are the same as allopatric schools? Basically, is someone with training in ENT, Neuro, or Ortho eligible without having gone through general surgery residency?

    When they emailed NYCOM students about the opening of our fellowship at St. Barnabas Hospital, they only mentioned osteopathic general surgery as a prerequisite. I don't know about the other 4 places, but I would guess that with less than 10 yearly spots nationwide, they will probably go to the GS residents at that same hospital, or a hospital from the same OPTI depending on the interest.
