Sorry if this topics has been already talked about. I am new to this board. I am currently in the proccess of applying to medical schools. I find the philosophy pertaining to DO fascinating. My question is in regards to residency oppurtunities for the DO program. From what I have heard, even though both MD's and DO's go through similar educational processes, chances of getting surgical residency for DO are slim. I was wondering if that rumer was true. In addition, how does research opportunities for DO's compare to MD's? Thanks for any information in this matter.
