Hi everyone!
Is it possible to do medical research with a DO degree?
If so, which schools have the best research programs?

Yes, it is possible. Most DO schools have very little research, although TCOM and MSU have a lot of opportunities (at least for a DO school). If you know you want a career in research, it would be more practical to aim for an MD program. Besides doing research at your med school, there are one-year research fellowships, but it seems like they have a DO-bias. Good luck!
