It seems to me that alot of osteopathic students want allopathic residencies. I don't understand why. I hope to attend NYCOM in 2002 and would like do a family medicine osteopathic residency at either Lutheran or Jamaica Hospital. Both of these hospitals has a D.O as the head of the program for osteopaths and allopaths. Is this desire to obtain allopathic residencies a speciality thing or what?
