    Just came across some cool information by US news and world report regarding what percentage of residents enter Primary care from certain schools.

    It was no surprise to see most DO schools at the top of the list, but KCOM being towards the bottom caught me off guard. Info is an average from 2005-2007 graduating class.

    WVSOM - 84.5%
    MSUCOM - 83.3%
    KCOM - 33.3%

    No GA-PCOM grad has ever gone into primary care. I'm penciling myself into that UPenn integrated plastics already.

    Thank you Capt. Obvious. For those that don't know, there are only 3 years worth of students at the school. ::woosh::

    Wow, your right KCOM was very surprising! I mean it produces less primary care residents than even many 'Gunner' type allopathic schools. Very unexpected!!
