|MadSci Network: Medicine|
I am a freshman planning on applying to medical school in a couple years, and I was wondering if someone could help me answer this question. I hope to get into medical school, but if it so happens that I must go into osteopathic medicine instead, can I still become an anesthesiologist? I believe it is possible because I read a short article about this on their website, but it did not go into very much detail at all. If it is possible, what are the differences between being a D.O. rather than an M.D. in this specific career? I know the general differences between a D.O. and M.D., but not in specific cases such as this. I plan on applying to medical school and hopefully getting in, but with the extreme competition, I was wondering if this was another viable route in obtaining the career I would like. Thank you for your help, especially if you are already in the career field. I have many questions about the issue, this is merely the most pertinent right now:)... Mark
