Osteopathic Programs

I know that from rotating at programs that there is a fair amount of interaction among osteopathic programs and allopathic programs.I was curious if any osteopathic students spent time at any of the programs below and could offer their thoughts on the programs they've rotated at?How about any allopathic counterparts that have had interactions with the programs, any thoughts?UMDNJ, NJWest Virgina, WVMichigan State, MIDetroit Medical Center/Garden City, MIGrand Rapids, MIEast Lansing, MICook County, ILOlympia Fields, ILPCOM, PA

I've lived in Michigan my entire life and am going into Urology, and  I haven't heard of three of those programs.  So, I think that says something about those programs...The one I have heard of is the DMC program.  It is relatively new (I don't think anyone has graduated from it yet).  Per the ERAS site, one of the MSU programs is in Mt. Clemens.  I can't imagine that the case load would be any good there.  Too close to Detroit and some other very good Urology hospitals.  There will obviously be the basic cases, but I can't see them doing too many big cases.  Those cases will end up at places like Beaumont, Henry Ford, Karmanos, St. Johns, etc.  Sames goes for the one in Pontiac, MI.  East Lansing is also a smaller town.  It's a college town.  So outside of the nearby capital of MI, there aren't too many people that will need a Urologist for anything too exciting.  The Grand Rapids program probably has the most potential because there are no other programs on the West Side of the state.
