    Since this was brought up in another thread, I thought overall people might be interested in this. This lists all of the DO schools and the % of their graduates entering primary care, and also has breakdowns into FM, IM, Peds. TRI means traditional rotating internships that typically last one year and is not included in the primary care %. Usually people go into TRI by choice, like some states require it for DO licensure or if they did not particulary set their minds at a particular residency or if they're using that year to eye for better opportunities.

    ths list is at http://www.amsa.org/programs/pcscore8_osteo.pdf
    and i found it at http://www.amsa.org/programs/pcscore8.cfm

    Hope this helps

    Doh!

    That list doesn't have either of the schools I've been accepted to on it.

    I'm curious why doesn't LECOM-Erie appear on that USNews list. Does it just not release it's stats? Or is it just not that great of a school. Just curious.

    What does the number of graduates going into primary care have to do with the school's quality?

    Well Osteopathic schools do boast primary care correct? Besides the point, I just want to know why a school would possibly not list their stats? And don't get me wrong, I did like Lecom-Erie. That is why I want to know why it is not listed.

    I would think it has nothing to do with it.

    % of students who receive their top choices would be the important thing.

    Thanks for the help, but that is a list from 2002, very old in DO world. For example, I am in contact with some Western students and their class is going to be 30-40% specializing compared to the 2004 match list that is heavy on primary care (esp. family medicine). It is an overall trend that is seeing more DO's, (of course some schools have been always will be primary care MS, WV) specializing, plus, good point brought up, doesnt have anything to do with quality of institution. Just look at trend from 2000-now. A 2002 stat is not going to help really.

    The LECOM list is guarded well. Contact mellissa watkins @ LECOM erie for the break down or better yet go on line to the note server (erie based) and pulled off there.
