I am starting to look into shadowing a physician to get a better feel for the profession, but am not sure whether to look for an MD or a DO to shadow. My nontrad profile and relatively low UG GPA seems to make DO a more likely option for me, but I think allopathic could still be in the cards. So, my question is who should I shadow? Would allopathic shools look less favorably upon time spend shadowing a doctor if s/he is a DO? Would DO's schools not take me seriously unless I had spent time shadowing a DO? Not sure which way I should go, any advice would be much appreciated as always.
