PCSOM and WVSOM focus on primary care. I am sorry, but I do not know much about the other DO schools. I am sure that if you do a search on SDN, you will find what you are looking for. Good luck to you. PM me if you have any questions about this topic.

i don't know of any school that offers or focuses on 'specialized' medical fields, at least as far as didatics go. then human body is the same puzzling entity irregardless of what school you attempt to learn it at... the only specialization i might be able to consider is how much time you have to spend in years one and two on OMM/OMT.

your best bet if you are interested in something specific is to view where the school offers rotations in their third and fourth years, and perhaps their affiliation with research programs.

According to U.S. News, MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine was ranked #4, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine was ranked #20, and OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine was ranked #30 in primary care. PCSOM and WVSOM did not make the list, although I was only able to see the top 50 schools.

I am not to sure why you would list the Oseopathic schools in the top primary care fields of US news. He was asking for the schools that have a strong specialization in fields other then primary care . And the schools that are not listed in the top primary field USNews listing does not mean that they are schools that specialize in other programs.

PCOM sends more than 50% of its graduating class into non-primary care fields.

most of my classmates (@ LECOM) don't want to do primary care, and when i interviewed, i said i didn't, and my interviewers didn't seem to care at all. one of them even said she never had an interest in primary care either- she was a DO infectious disease specialist. (although i wouldn't necessarily tell them that during an interview, unless you knew a little about your interviewers).

LECOM has a lot of space for electives during the 4th year and they encourage students to do whatever and go wherever they can. thats not to say they wouldn't love it if we all went primary care. however, neither our dean nor our president are in primary care, and the faculty is always joking how everyone wants to specialize these days. i have no actual statistics, but at LECOM the attitude is pretty much do whatever you want- they know that many of us will specialize, and that primary care isn't for everyone. Many of our lectures are given by clinicians who are MDs anyway . . .
