Hi, I am curious, how difficult is it for a DO to obtain a residency in a MD program? Is it very difficult for a DO to follow basically the same track as an MD or are there numerous hoops and paperwork that must be followed in order to gain a residency in emergency medicine for example? Thanks, Tim. Also are there certain osteopathic schools where it is much easier to obtain a residency of choice? Do DO schools help students with the match process? Is it very hard for a DO student to match with the residency of their choice in a location of their choice or does a DO have to settle for whatever residency in the middle of nowhere? Thanks again, Tim.
