What is a D.O.?
D.O’s (osteopathic physician) and M.D.’s (allopathic physician) both attend four-year medical colleges. Both must pass comparable state licensing examinations, practice in fully accredited and licensed health care facilities. D.O’s comprise a separate, yet equal branch of American medical care.
Osteopathic medical schools emphasize training students to practice a “whole person” approach to medicine. Instead of just treating specific symptoms or illnesses, they regard your body as an integrated whole. Osteopathic physicians focus on preventive health care. D.O.’s receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system—your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones that makes up two-thirds of your body mass. This training provides osteopathic physicians with a better understanding of how an illness or injury in one part of your body can affect another.
