What is a D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine)?
In the United States, all physicians earn their professional doctorate in the form of either M.D. or D.O. Osteopathic medicine was originally founded in 1874. It holds that treatment should be guided by the idea that the body is a self-healing unit of mind, body, and soul where structure and function are intimately related. http://www.osteopathic.org
* Both D.O.s and M.D.s typically have a four year undergraduate degree prior to medical training.
* Both D.O.s and M.D.s take the MCAT, followed by a rigorous application process; both then spend four years in medical school.
* Both D.O.s and M.D.s choose to practice in a specialty area of medicine and complete a residency program (often shared between D.O.s and M.D.s) ranging from 3-7 years.
* Both D.O.s and M.D.s perform surgery, deliver babies, and prescribe medications; both use the same tools, treatments, and technologies of medicine to treat patients.
* D.O.s receive extra training and certification in the musculoskeletal system, called Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). This is both an evidence-based and philosophically-based practice that involves the use of the physician's hands to diagnose illness and to encourage your body's natural ability to heal.
