    Hi, I am interested in Ortho Sx Residency, and I am currently a MSI at an Osteopathic Medical Program. I posted a topic about a month ago...Ortho. Sx Residencies for DOs, and I would like to thank all those that replied. From my research and understanding, there is plenty of competition in this field and it is not an easy one to match, regardless of whether you are a DO or MD.

    I would like to ask the members of the SDN if they know any DOs in ACGME approved Ortho. Residency programs, or any that may have graduated from one. If you have this information, your reply would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and considerations...

    Hi:

    I don't know if this will help or not. But you can go to a lot of residency websites and see their current and sometimes past residents - like where they went to school etc. Some places have email contacts and then you could contact the DOs you found and ask about their experience matching and all.

    cheers

    Try and find a copy of JAMA from September 5, they did their annual residency breakdown. I have mine here, and it looks like there are 13 total DO's in ACGME Ortho programs nationwide.
