osteopathic schools don't hire allopathic (MD) to their orthopaedic residencies, however, looking how many current open osteopathic orthopaedic residency position their are, it seems it would have been less competitive to find an orthopaedic residency as a DO opposed to as a MD

Thanks GOD for this thread! You have no idea how frustrating it is to be completely lost and having NO info on DO ortho programs. Here's my contribution.

I'm screwed when it comes to elective rotations. My school requires us to go on "rural rotations" for two months of our 4th year. Mine are in Sept and Oct...prime audition rotation months. So I only have july, august, november and december to rotate. Lots of programs interview in october and november..very few in december so I'm hogtied. I did well on the comlex scoring >92 percentile, but as we all know programs want you to rotate. A lot of schools are starting to link their internship year, so that screws me further. Ortho is the one specialty I really enjoy. It's one of the few specialties that you actually fix people and see the results of your work. They come in broke and leave fixed, which is something I really appreciate about it. It's not that I would be miserable doing something else, but I'm the one who has to get up and go to work, I might as well do something I'm passionate about. Why should I miss out on this because my school has a fetish for rural medicine?

check out the MCG program in Augusta GA, although a traditional allopathic residency they consider DO candidates very highly and have several very good DO residents

Hi. This is my first time writing and the first time I hear about DO ortho programs. I'm a foreign MD and I've been strugling for 3 years to get into an ortho program. I heard about DO programs....
-Can anybody tell me more about them?
-How can I look them up?
-What's the selection process?
-Will they take a foreign MD, or is it still very difficult?

Any info is useful and appreciated. Please reply, PM or email me.
Thanks.
