I’m getting ready to apply to a postbac program that has linkage agreements with a few medical schools: one D.O. and 2 M.D. I am considering the D.O. due to location (closer to family, better weather) and I actually like the D.O. philosophy. I would have to make the decision to participate in the linkage program very early on, practically at the beginning of school.
So my questions to the D.O. students or physicians are:
1. Do any of you wish you had gone to an M.D. school instead? If so, why?
2. Do you feel limited by the D.O. designation in any way?
3. This isn’t really a question, but any other advice or thoughts on the subject?
