Most of you all ready know this, but I found out a little late...an allopathic student doing rotations at an Osetopathic hospital may or maynot get credit for said rotations for State licensing purposes. Best to do your homework here and find out before you match in a state whether or not this is the case.
However, here is the double standard...an Osteopathic student will receive credit (don't know of a state where they won't) for his/her rotations whether it is an Osetopathic or allopathic program.
Would love to know the logic behind all this nonsense. Does it mean DO hospitals are not qualified to train, can't train as well as MD hospitals, why the double standards.. Seems antiquated to me. Show me the difference or is this just another idiot's version of elitism? State licensing boards are making these kinds of decisions and opening themselves up for full blown lawsuits. One is going on in CA right now.
Pray tell me why is Va Tech building a first-class DO hosp. to the tune of 30mil, if only for DO and no MDs' allowed(if they want credit for licensing purposes.????).
