I read one of the old posts about DOs getting into MD surgery residencies, but there is one question I still had. I have heard that surgery is old school, in that in order to take the boards, you not only have to complete the MD residency, but you have to have graduated from a MD school. I also understand that to take the AOA boards in surgery, you have to do a DO residency. This would of course mean the only real option for a DO graduate is to do a DO surgery program. Does anyone know if this is correct. I am only an MSII now, and haven't decided on any particular residency, but am considering surgery and am curious of any of these factors I should be considering. Thank you.
