Today was my last day of my observership and I was talking to the medical students in my group. One girl said that DO's were more focused on taking care of the patient and MD's were more research oriented. I never thought of it like this as I was still caught up in the MD vs. DO stigma. If this is the case, than I guess I am wasting my time applying to allopathic programs because I am interested in treating sick patients; not necessarily finding the cure for whatever it is that is making them sick. What are your thoughts on DO MD's and their main focus?
