Considerations When Navigating Residency Application
Dr. Saroj Misra focuses on the challenges that osteopathic students will face as programs move to Single Accreditation, including a scan of the current and future environments for OMS’, strategies for choosing a residency program (based on your needs) and how to navigate one or both matches (for as long as they exist).
