    I'm sure this question has been asked & answered before but I couldn't find an easy way to search for it...

    I plan on applying for a DO internship and an MD PGY-2 spot this year. If I match into a DO internship, will I be pulled from the allopathic match for a PGY-2 spot?

    No. I had several classmates match a PGY1 spot in the DO match & then a PGY2 spot in the MD match.

    No problem.

    Just be sure that you're applying for internship only, not a linked DO program.

    ...and that you won't be able to match into any categorical MD residency spots, only advanced...which may cut down on the number of programs you have available to you....
