I have recently been accepted to UHS College of Osteopathic Medicine. There is also a great possibility that I will be accepted to UMKC School of Medicine (as an advanced standing student- which has some drawbacks because there are a few medical courses that I would not be able to take). Therefore, I'm most likely to go the DO route. I would like to know, from those of you who are about to be, in, or have completed residency, if DOs have great difficulty in matching a specialty residency, such as orthopedic surgery. I work for a group of cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, and like those specialties also. I like the DO approach to medicine and feel that it really suits my personality and taste for medicine, however, I want to make sure that it is the right decision for the future, say 5 to 15 years from now? Please help.
