It was suggested that I start another thread on this topic. I am attaching what I wrote in a previous thread:
Even though I will just start my pre-reqs this Fall, I have already started to research med schools in my area (Broward County, South Florida). One of these schools is Nova Southeastern University (a DO school).
In reply to a previous post, Emergency mentioned:
“If you are a DO grad, you’re going to face more of a challenge trying to match into a MD program. Some MD programs don’t seriously consider DO grads, but a fair amount will.”
The questions below are for anyone (especially DOâ€™s):
- Knowing that for DOâ€™s matching into a MD Emergency Medicine residency is difficult, are there as many DO residencies in Emergency Medicine as MD Emergency residencies?
*Do DO’s have a need to apply to a MD Emergency Residency program or are there ample DO residency programs to apply to? How competitive are these DO Emergency Residency programs?
I am just trying to figure out my chances of getting into a Emergency Medicine residency if I graduate from a DO medical school?
Thanks a lot for your help!
