    I have a question regarding how succesful DO's are at securing fellowships. I would like to be a neonatologist or pediatric intensivist but have never seen a DO function in that capacity. So I have only applied to MD schools. However, I work at a hospital that has both MD and DO residents (fam. prac.) and I don't have a bias towards either one and in fact it seems that the DO's tend to be a little sharper. What is the scoop, can DO's get into pediatric intensivist or neonatal fellowships?

    I think the head of neonatology at Winthrop Hospital(on Long Island) is a DO. Also, Peds residencies are not too hard to get, and if you work hard you will be able to get a fellowship.

    You can also become a peds critical care via peds residency, then anesthesia, and then finally 2 year peds critical care. When I was at Hopkins and Brigham for interviews I meet a few residents going this route.
