Great, but the real question is how many DOs can get into such a competetive field when compared with MD students? I am not trying to belittle DOs-It was a route I was also considering, but after reading the books by Brian Freeman and Kenneth Iserson, it seems like DO's have difficulty matching in certain fields. Based on the statistics from the 2002 NRMP, there are very, very low %'s of DOs that match in Rad Onc (or several other specialties, for that matter).stephew said:DOs can indeed get rad onc residencies.
Ask this guy: http://www.stjude.org/faculty/0,2512,407_2030_3357,00.htmlSu4n2 said:Hi, i was wondering if this field is open to DO's in terms of allopathic residencies in NYC and being able to get in since it is so small. can you also describe what the residency is like. thanx
