Dont read too far into it. I just got the impression that if you dont go to MSUCOM, KCUM, or like some other really well established osteo school, its much less common to land a competitve specialty.How does knowing what specialties students are placed into have any effect what so ever on that institution? It just doesn't make sense to me. I would think the hospital systems they place students matter, not the specialty itself. I feel like most students who wish to enter Osteopathic practice actually share the emphasis in primary care, and is reflected in those placement lists.
I've noticed that asking if students are matched in x specialty is a trend on SDN, and I don't get why that information is helpful at all..
