A doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) is a physician licensed to practice medicine, perform surgery, & prescribe medication. Both DOs and MDs complete 4 years of basic medical education. After medical school, both DOs and MDs can choose to practice in a specialty area of medicine. After completing a residency program both DOs and MDs must pass comparable state licensing examinations. The primary difference is the type of post-graduate school they attend. MDs (Medical Doctors) attend a college or school of medicine, and DOs (Dr. of Osteopathy) attend an Osteopathic College. Today there are no significant differences between these two degrees. MDs and DOs practice side-by-side in most hospitals and many practice groups are made up of a combination of both.
