* DO vs MD Emergency Medicine Residency
 #852825

  How are DO EM residency programs different from MD EM residency programs. If I match with an AOA EM program, how will it affect my future practice as an EM physician?

Thanks!

  DO can do both but MD can't do DO residency. DO will have to take the USMLE as well when applying to MD spots even if he is considered a US graduate and passed the COMLEX!Anyway this will change soon, most DO schools will implement USMLE and will merge with ACMGE eventually due to the DO students frustrations over the years. In general, ER departments and employers don't differentiate between DO and MD except in high tier university programs where MD are preferred. If you are an IMG, you will benefit from tailoring your application based on some criteria proposed by program directors as in this book http://www.lulu.com/us/en/shop/applicant-guide-and-match-a-doc/emergency-medi...395020.html
