Hello all: What is with all the topics on DO residencies?? Are they that hard to obtain? I chose to go DO because I was told that there are NO limits on what type of doctor you want to be even though half of the DO's choose primary care. All this talk about the pain-in-the-ass experience of getting quality residencies is making me question the validity (and acceptance) of the DO degree. Plus, how can the AOA consider you a traitor if you chose an allopathic residency when (from what I understand) they cannot provide enough residency spots for the DO graduating classes? Since I am starting med school this year I hope that they fix this problem by the time I graduate med school.
