What kind of opportunities are there for DOs in the field of surgery? Are they the same as those found in allopathic Med? I am very interested in Orthopedics, but I am also starting to look heavily into osteopathic Med. I hear lots of talk about the "disadvantages of being a DO (I'm at a school with a allopathic Med. school on campus), such things like "as a DO you don't have much of a choice but to be in Primary Care," or "yea..you can do surgery...but you will not be paid the same." Soon I plan to shadow a DO, and I'm sure that I will get a bunch of info when I do. I just want to know what you guys/gals think about this.
