Hi all. I'm new to the forum, so let me introduce myself for everyone. Ever since I can remember I have wanted to become a physician. Ever since my freshman year of high school I have wanted to become an osteopathic physician. Next year I will be a first-year student next year at Utica College of Syracuse University, enrolled in a seven year medical osteopathic program with UNECOM. I also got accepted to PCOM, NYCOM, and Western U's programs. I just wanted to know where UNECOM ranks among these other schools. Does UNE implement a dress code? Are students happy there? How hard is it for an osteopathic physician to obtain a AOA or ACGME general surgery residency? What about orthopedic surgery? Are there any AOA-accredited surgery supspecialty fellowships? Thank you all for your replies..and I look forward to talking with many of you for years to come! Also, does UNECOM implement a dress code?
