Osteopathic Applicants

For osteopathic applicants applying into an allopathic residency:

Graduating from an osteopathic school should not limit your application as candidates are evaluated by the same criteria as allopathic graduates. Research opportunities are also available for candidates with either background.

Applicants applying to allopathic dermatology residencies must complete the USMLE exams in addition to their COMLEX exams for consideration. One also must decide if they are going to do an osteopathic or allopathic dermatology residency, as this will determine the type of internship that must be completed.
