    even though i am canadian, i would say DO in the US because you get pecking order for residency at least. more so than carribean students. but then again i am canadian so not the best one to ask!

    The time old dilemma: carib MD vs DO

    There are a hundred threads on this topic in the past. A search will turn up more than you could ever want on this subject. You can also check out SDN where you will find even more.

    You should realize that you are taking a poll of a group who have chosen a carib MD over a DO (DOs rarely participate on this forum). Thus, you can expect that most will say that a carib MD is better. You will get an entirely different set of answers if you go to SDN and ask on the DO forum.

    Also, you should recognize that the opinions expressed here are generally from people who are just beginning their medical career. Many seem very concerned about the title DO and less concerned about some of the hurdles faced by carib grads. It is probably worthwhile to go to the NRMP site and compare the match rates for DOs and USIMGs.
