In short, solid program with outstanding basic research but utter lack of resident participation in basic research. Also, if you are a DO take note b/c Henry Ford is a program that has historically taken osteopthic grads (both DO and DO/PhD).

I'm not a DO, I'm MD (well future one anyway), does that mean that I'd be disadvantaged in applying there or that the prefer DOs? Or is the just typically seems to apply there? ( I know you might not be able to answer that, but though I'd just ask it anyway)

I have no inside information, but there are more MDs than DOs in the program. I don't think there is a particular predilection for taking DOs, it probably just worked out that way in the Match. However, not many programs take DOs historically which is why I pointed this out.

i dont think any place prefers DOs per se (*spare my the hate notes- its not a comment on the quality of DO)
