Hi everyone! I'm trying to make sense of the process that follows after being accepted into a DO program to become a FP DO:

2 years - basic sciences in med school
2 years - clinical clerkships (still part of med school)
Take the USMLE/COMLEX (USMLE is preferred by most? And when you apply for DO/MD slots once you get a DO slot your app is withdrawn from MD pools?)
2-3 years - low pay residency
1 year - AOA approved internship to be able to be certified in states like PA, FL, and 3 others (is the internship paid??)

I know I'm probably missing some huge necessary milestones so if anyone can offer corrections on the timing it would be a great help. Thank you!

If your heart is set on FP, then you should consider LECOM's 3 year program.
~2 years basic science
~ 1 year clinical rotations
3 year residency
1? year fellowship in Obstetrics if you want to be a full package.

4 years med school (exception with program listed above). Take COMLEX +/- USMLE during med school (1 & 2) and intern year (3)
3 years residency
Yes, if you get a spot in the osteopathic match you are pulled from the MD match
The intern year isn't something separate. It is the first year of residency
