AbstractResidents entering residency come from two lines of medical education, allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO). While schooling is nearly identical, there is a discrepancy between the specialties in which these graduates enter. In 2018, emergency medicine residency programs were made up of three-quarters allopathic graduates and one-quarter osteopathic graduates. This study sought to better understand the diversity of emergency medicine programs as it relates to their location, duration, and credentials of members.
