    When looking for a residency and jobs...does having a MD over DO make a significant difference?I would really appreciate other's insight? How competative is the market out there for physicians who graduated with DO's.
    I will be starting PCOM next year...I am very excited over the prospect of becoming a physician. I just want to make sure that all the burden that I would be placing my husband and child through...I hope to be able to find a good job and payoff my loans...

    Credible sources tell me that hardly any attention is paid to whether the physician is a DO or MD when selecting residents.

    I am further advised that the osteopathic schools are more likely to admit a non-traditional student.

    In whatever you choose, do your best.

    I definitely agree. Out of all the doctors I've worked with, none of them said anything bad about being a DO. Most have told me that, DO = MD as long both are competent.

    As a DO student, the only people out there that really cause a lot of problems are the ignorant ones and the ones that like to josh around.
