Hey guys, Im a new user here and I had a question regarding DO's that maybe someone could answer. Im well aware of the process for a MD to become a specialist (like a surgeon, radiologist, etc.) but im not really sure of the DO's. I read that DO's can become specialists as well but is this realistic? Because, I mean your comepeting with MD's correct? or does that not make a difference. Anyway, does anybody know the whole process for a DO to become a specialist? Is it shorter or longer than an MD? Is it realistic that hospitals and residence will hire me at good hospitals? If someone can help thanks!
