    I am hopefully attending DO school this upcoming Fall and I wanted to ask all you resident DOs out there what you think your starting salaries, for your perspecive specialties/programs of study, will be once you complete your residency training.

    Thanks

    Starting salaries are the same. I was talking to a DO EM attending at a level 2 trauma center, and he says they hire at starting 200-250k. My programs of study, are, well, just like everyone elses. I read Tintinalli's (or pretend to) and take the in-service just like everyone else.

    Except I can crunch some mean thoracics while my MD counterparts can't.

    Q, DO

    Salary is primarily dependant on experience and location. I have seen starting salaries in the midwest anywhere from 160k-250k benefits are wide ranging. Shifts are anywhere from 8hrs to 12 hrs.
    Yep "rack and crack" often...not the patients much though. It aint rocket science, its like riding a bicycle.
