    Ok, so while I was riding the pine at today's baseball game I thought of this question.

    Is it possible for a DO to match into an OMM fellowship after finishing an ER residency?

    I guess they could work there required shift work with this and have a little OMM practice on the side. It seemed like something I might want to do.


    Anyways does anybody know?

    Quinn,

    I had a feeling you would be on this one pretty quick.

    How is residency treating you?

    You do not need to complete post graduate training in OMM in order to have a practice "on the side", particularly if you are planning on charging cash for service. You just need to be good in OMM.

    Residency is awesome! Only 3 more months to go and I'll be an EM resident. Scary scary, as I feel I don't know enough, but it will be fun having interns below me to teach (since I am in the first class at our program).

    Q, DO
