Orthopedic Specialists

What is the difference between M.D. and D.O.?

There are two types of medical schools: Allopathic, to obtain a doctor of medicine degree (M.D.), and Osteopathic, to obtain a doctor of osteopathic medicine degree (D.O.). Both have the same educational background and length of study and must pass state licensure requirements and examinations to practice medicine.
