Hello, I will be entering an osteopathic medical school in Fall 2006. I was wondering, what are my chances of landing a competitive residency, such as dermatology, ENT, orthopedic surgery, etc.? What factors will residency committees be looking at when it comes to assigning specialties? As an osteopathic medical student in eastern Kentucky, will I be comparatively disadvantaged to a osteopathic student in say, New York? Will I have as good a shot at getting a competitive residency as an MD would? Thanks.
