    Hello

    I was wondering if anybody has any suggestion on finding a D.O. whom I could shadow and maybe even get a rec. from this summer.
    I have tried my state's osteopathic association, career center at my school, and hostpital at my school and had no luck.

    I go to Emory University in Atlanta, GA
    and will be applying to osteopathic schools this summer.

    thanks

    Unlike my small Georgia town, Atlanta has many DO's, I'm sure. This may sound odd, but have you tried opening the phonebook? Also, if you know any MD's in town, ask them if they could recommend, or better yet, introduce you to a DO.. just some ideas...

    DaGe, this question was recently addressed in the OCOM FAQs section. Visit: http://www.osteopathic.com/faq

    Good luck.

    The AMA has a doctor finder on its website where you can enter the city and type of physician, for example family practice, and it will list all of the physicians in that area both DO and MD whether they are members of the AMA or not.

    Also, TUCOM has a (800) number where, as a last resort, they maintain a listing of DOs in your area who are generally willing to interview you for a letter. I don't have the number any more...you can call the school for it.
