Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O. or DO) is a professional doctoral degree for physicians in the United States. Holders of the DO degree are known as osteopathic physicians and have the same rights, privileges and responsibilities as MDs.

DOs are licensed to practice the full scope of medicine and surgery in all 50 states. Depending on state, licensure may be issued from a combined board (DO & MD) or a separate board of medical examiners;[2] regardless, all of the 70 state boards are members of the Federation of State Medical Boards.[3]

Currently, there are 25 medical schools that offer the DO degree - in comparison with 130 medical schools that offer the MD degree. DOs make up a small population, approximately 11%, of practicing physicians and surgeons in the United States.
