Hi, I am currently going pre-optometry, but i stumbled across the pre-osteopathic zone. The ideologies of the profession really does sounds interesting. I was just curious how difficult it is to get in relative to an MD program. Are there many OD's practicing in CA? I looked and there were only 2 or 3 OD schools in CA. How are the lifestyles of OD's? Do OD's also specialize, for example in opthalmology? Oh and one more silly question: Why isn't it OD for osteopathic doctors? Could it be because they created OD first for optometrists? =) thanks!
