    Hello all, I am wondering what 3rd/4th year students & residents feel about opportunities for peds clinical training as DOs. I have heard that DO opportunities are very weak, so to specialize in peds, one would really have to compete for MD spots-is this accurate or am I missing part of reality? And does anyone happen to know if the peds programs for DOs is evolving to get better or has this yet to be addressed? When I went through a couple of interviews and heard about this, I was so disappointed because I am committed to entering this awesome specialty. Any feedback would be appreciated, as my mentors have said that when choosing a school, you'd have to really plan 5-6 years ahead.

    Thanks,
    Swimmer
