    Ok, here it is. After doing some research i have found that i might like the DO's phylosophy better than the other... But, i am consern about getting a spot for an ***Emergency residence possition, and or ***getting Jobs after becoming a DO.

    My Questions are:

    1)If you are already a DO, are you satisfied with the profession...(reputation, salary, respect from MD and patients, dealing with this kind of quetions...***how confidant do YOU FEEL ABOUT BEING A DO....please excuse me if you find this question offensive, but i feel that it cannot be ignored!)

    2)***Is it hard to find jobs in big cities such as New York...with a specialty other than primary care...example Emergnecy medicine.

    3)***Do DO's and MD's have the same salary (assuming they have the same specialty)

    4)**what do you like/dislike about the profession.

    Any coment would be of great help on making my decision. i understand this question might offend some of you. if you are offended please excuse me...i need the information, so i have to ask

    Well, I know alot of DOs, they all make the same amount of money as MDs. In the field MDs and DOs are same. I know a DO who is a cardiologist, doesn't matter DO MD same.

    DOs can anywhere and everywhere an MD can work. Salary is same. (everywhere includes Emergency Dept.)

    Be a DO only because you want to be, not because you have no choice.

    Emergency Medicine is actually one of the few fields where MD's and DO's are seen as near equals in all aspects of the job. My uncle is a DO who works as an ER doc. I think part of it has to do with many ER's becoming primary care providers for inner city people who don't really have access to other doctors
