I m a bit confused about some of the terms used on some of these match lists.

What is a traditional residency? Is this a residency done at a DO program or an MD program?

What is a transitional program?

Do most DO grads end up doing DO residencies? How many end up doing MD residencies?

Are all DO residency programs at small community hospitals or are some in larger cities also?
