Hi, I've been reading all of your recent MD/DO debates, and decided it was finally time to chime in with an observation. I should start by saying that I have COMPLETE respect for DO's and the traning they receive. So here it is: I was accepted at both MD and DO schools. Two months ago I chose MD. Why did I do that? The main reason is because of the emotions, beliefs, perpetuated stereotypes, direspect and inflammatory comments demonstrated in the recent threads on SDN. The fact that battles like this exist is sad. I personally decided to avoid any unneeded stress, so I chose to go MD. I'm interested in any thoughts on this.
