How is an Osteopathic physician different from a Medical Doctor?

Both complete four years of basic medical education, both generally choose a specialty area to practice in (such as pediatrics, family practice, surgery) after completing a 2-6 year residency, both pass comparable state licensing examinations, both practice in fully accredited and licensed health care facilities. DO’s comprise a separate, yet equal branch of American medical care. Together, DO’s & MD’s enhance the state of care available in America, however, it is the ways that DO’s and MD’s are different that can bring an extra dimension to your family’s health care.
