i was talking to a 1st year osteopathic orthopedic surgery resident and he told me that statistically it is easier for a DO to match into DO-ortho then an allo matching to into MD-ortho. he told me that there were 10 applications for 1 DO ortho residency, in contrast to 20 applicants for 1 MD residency. is this true? also what other specialties are easier to match into as a DO applying to osteo? gas? rads?
