Smile Can you do clerkship or externship in DOs/Osteopathic Medicine?

Hi!

It may sound as a stupid question for some but I really want to know if that would be ok or allowed.

Thanks.

Correct Answer Yes

Yes you can do that.

I've a friend who has done it.

It's just like the MD school and you can then apply for residency as MD, you don't need to apply as DO, as long as you have MD degree in your country.
