I hear they aren't as competitive for residencies (the two that I have in mind right now are Pathology and Aerospace Medicine) and that MD's think they are the guys who weren't "good enough" for medical school. Can comeone help me feel better about applying to DO?

I think problem based learning is way better, do you find loads of information told to you for 2 to 3 hours fun or do you find it more interesting when given with clinical examples and yo have to think on it while learning?Zethra wrote:I forgot to mention one other thing that had me worried. I looked at some cirriculums (UNT in Fort Worth, TX and NYCOM in NY) and I keep seeing something about chosing between lecture based and problem based learning. What's the difference?
Also the curriculums are so much different from allopathic schools. How well do DO curriculums prep students electing to take the USMLE for residencies?
