Are there any AOA OB/GYN residencies left?
I'm a DO student. I always thought I would go into primary care. I'm 2 weeks into my OB rotation and I am absolutely in love with it. The problem is, I never took step 1, so snagging an ACGME OB spot is a little far-fetched. I was just wondering if any of you might know an AOA OB/GYN residencies left out there? Thanks.

Iowa Carver COM vs. Emory
I am interested in Public Health/Global Health, but I'm not sure the prestige of Emory is worth the extra 100k. Also, I haven't decided if I want to do an MPH. At Emory, the MPH seems like a no-brainer but at Iowa I don't know if the degree has the same heft in the field or if I should stick with the Global Health track they offer. I want to make sure I haven't missed something. Thanks for the input University of Iowa Carver COM Pros Strong primary care program Total... Iowa Carver COM vs. Emory (Source: Student Doctor Network)

I want to work in family medicine/ primary care.
I am a current freshman in college and I go to a community college. I have though about going to medical school but I really don’t see myself going that route and have read that if you want to go into primary care you shouldn’t go to Med school because you rack up so much debt. I love the concept of primary care and would like to build up a good relationship with patients and be trusted even though I won’t be an actual physician. I have thought about earning my Associates Of Science and then... I want to work in family medicine/ primary care. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Known for most clinical exposure?
Where do students get the most clinical exposure? From other forums, I've seen UoP produces great general dentists while UCSF leaves the students seeking a GPR to feel more prepared. I talked to a dentist and he mentioned UAB being a good school for general practice. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Any internal medicine docs in primary care?
Just want to here stories of IM docs who went into primary care. Are you happy in outpatient primary care? Did you always want to do it, or did you kind of end up there? If you had to do it all over again, would you do IM again to get to primary care or FM? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Should I go to an II for a similarly ranked school?
Hi Guys, I have recently received an II late in the cycle for Temple. I have been accepted to Saint Louis Univeristy and was wondering if it will be worth 450$ for this trip all the way to philly around the super bowl. Not that rankings matter much but SLU is ranked lower in research and Higher in Primary care and “smart rank” this being said im kind of trying to see from you guys other factors that may be worth visiting temple.

Specialties
Hi, Just been accepted to a DO school, and I was wondering what specialties are open to average DO students after ACGME and AOA residency merger? I didn't say I was interested in primary care or rural medicine on my interview trail and I don't really want to be locked into primary care if I don't do well at all. Are surgery, ENT, ortho, anesthesiology, ER, or literally anything that's not primary care still visible if you are like ~50% of the class? (Source: Student Doctor Network)
