that DOs can't become faculty at medical schools, just ask this guy (among others).
Dr. Ross D. Zafonte is Earle P. and Ida S. Charlton Professor and Chairman of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School. He also serves as chief of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, as well as Senior Vice President Medical Affairs Research and Education at Spaulding Rehabilitation Network
I remember when I interviewed there he went on for like 20 min just introducing himself and going through his CV. When he finished everyone was just like "DAMN! This dude's a boss". Really impressive guy
The Dallas County Medical Society just elected a DO as president for 2015! As a native Dallasite, I thought this was interesting enough on a personal level, but apparently DCMS is the second-largest county medical society in the entire nation and has over 7,000 med students, doctors, and residents!
I am confused by his residency and fellowship stuff. I suppose he is a little older, stuff was different back then. But its almost like he did a gen. surg residency and then a neuro fellowship? Never heard of that before.Donald Graham DO is a neurological spinal surgeon who I got the chance to talk to. He holds one of the first patents for an artificial disk!
As far as I know, he did a one year medical internship, then decided on neurosurgery. I think his neuro residency didn't have an attached 1 year surgical internship so he had to do that separately. He's a bit of an old-timer. His diploma still reads "Doctor of Osteopathy".I am confused by his residency and fellowship stuff. I suppose he is a little older, stuff was different back then.

That's super cool that 'human doctors' are working with non-humans. I'd like to look into something like that, one day.
BAM! Save that for later if space medicine interests you.
