(D.O.s), like allopathic physicans (M.D.s) are fully qualified to practice medicine and surgery in each of the 50 states. Both D.O.s and M.D.s attend medical school for four years, and must pass comparable state licensing requirements. A difference between the two training systems is that Doctor’s of Osteopathic Medicine receive additional training in the musculoskeletal system.
This additional instruction is delivered via manipulative therapy and the process of learning to use their hands to both diagnose and treat illness.
