Are there any residencies that are limited to only DO grads, meaning that allopathic grads can't apply to them?

Quick question: I noticed that some hospitals have schools next to them, the hospital being the main rotating site for that school. Can someone from one school rotate into a hospital they're not associated with? For example, I'm will be going to LECOM, but would I be able to rotate at UCONN, a school which is associated with UNECOM? How does one go about doing this?

Thanks

Yes, it does matter. Only LECOM students can rotate at LECOM sites. However, residencies affiliated with schools are not exclusive to those schools, i.e. OU-COM/Grandview hospital residencies are not just open to OU-COM students. There's a subtle difference. :thumbup:

Each school has a different policy when it comes to rotations. For the most part you need to do your rotations within your own schools OPTI. But for electives, you can certainly rotate outside this system.

If you are a subscriber to DO-Online (which you all can be once you start DO school...its free) you can view more information about osteopathic residencies.

All residency specialties are available for DOs in exclusive DO programs. Here's the AOA match website where some statistics and locations are available.

That site only lists internships. And DO residencies are not available for all specialties ie. no path, uro...
This site is a full listing of DO internships and residencies: http://do-online.osteotech.org/pdf/sir_opplist.pdf
This site is a search engine for DO internships and residencies: http://opportunities.aoa-net.org/cfm/OpSearch.cfm

Those sites are awesome.
