    Hi
    I am wondering which one is easier not academically but hours put it. I have a daughter and I want to spend as much time as I can with her so I am wondering which one is more family friendly, DO or MD?

    Also does anyone know which residencies are easier, as in hours worked, I mean DO residencies or MD residencies, particularly Diagnostic Radiology?

    Thank you so much for the info.

    Take care,
    Beckie

    Total time towards either degree is roughly equivalent. The same can be said for either type of Radiology residency. Either route requires one to learn the same material as the other.

    It depends on the school. Midwestern is known for having a tough curriculum. When you look at our quarter system and the number of hours we take each quarter plus our weekly exam schedule....it ain't easy being cheesy.

    I know some MD schools that are "cake" relatively speaking. If you want to spend more time with your daughter, find out the course curriculum and exam schedule of each school.
