I guess there might be a need of DO's or even more generally - doctors in America. I see nothing wrong with more DO schools. They're a great complement to MD's. I mean I don't see that much of a difference between the two and to be honest, wouldn't you rather have DO's than a caribbean MD? I sure would.MacGyver said:This is getting ridiculous. How many new schools have been opened the last 20 years? Its at least 10, and now with these new schools its going to be around 15 or so.
