Can someone plse explain the path to obtaining an Allopathic residency after you're done with DO school? Is it the same as path that MD graduates take?
My interest is radiation oncology. As a DO graduate, would it still be the typical 5 year residency? I don't have a clue. Thanks.

You might want to search this topic on this and the osteopathic boards....its been discuessed many many times.

Overall though it pretty much the same. You may or may not want to take the USMLE depending of the type of programs you want or not.
