Family medicine was the largest MATCHed specialty by Osteopathic medical students in its 2012 Osteopathic MATCH results that were announced early last week. 2,373 Osteopathic medical students participated in the Osteo MATCH and Family Medicine saw a 16% increase and filled 433 positions - the largest of any specialty! According to a 2011 report by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), approximately half of all DOs practice in primary care, particularly in the nation's rural and underserved areas.
Campbell University will open a new DO school in North Carolina beginning in the Fall of 2013.
