WHAT IS A D.O.?
D.O.'s and M.D.'s are alike in Many Ways
Students entering both D.O. and M.D. medical colleges typically have already completed four-year bachelor's degrees with an emphasis on scientific courses.
Both D.O.'s and M.D.'s complete four years of basic medical education.
After medical school, both D.O.'s and M.D.'s obtain graduate medical education through internships, residencies and fellowships. This training lasts three to eight years and prepares D.O.'s and M.D.'s to practice a specialty.
Both D.O.'s and M.D.'s can choose to practice in any specialty of medicine—such as pediatrics, family medicine, psychiatry, surgery or ophthalmology.
D.O.'s and M.D.'s must pass comparable examinations to obtain state licenses.
D.O.'s and M.D.s' both practice in accredited and licensed health care facilities.
Together, D.O.'s and M.D.'s enhance the state of health care available in the U.S.
D.O.'s, however, belong to a separate yet equal branch of American medical care. It is the ways that D.O.'s and M.D.'s are different that can bring an extra dimension to your health care.
