I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight into how difficult it might be for me to find a job, say, in los angeles after i finish my residency. I'm a competitive DO that will most likely match somewhere in the country (at least i hope so!). I'm concerned that after i finish my residency in that far off state, i won't be able to get back to LA at all because all the groups won't even consider me cause i'm a DO. I"m not sure if i want to settle down anywhere else in the country besides So Cal. If i was somewhat confident that going back to LA would be possible (even a not so desirable job, like working for Kaiser or something), then i could rest easier at night. Doing the anesthesia route would mean a possiblity of never being able to go back to los angeles again. Or i could pick a less desirable field like internal medicine and go back to LA and stay there forever. Anybody have any thoughts for me? Thanks!
