OK; I admit it. I have a formal educational background in allopathic, podiatric and osteopathic medicine. I also have both earned and conferred medical degrees from the States as well as Europe. I even dropped out of dental and law school back in the day … Such the protean dilettante!

Now, today there are about 950,000 allopathic physicians, 20,000 podiatrists, 150,000 dentists and 50,000 osteopaths. And, from this cohort of medical professionals, the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine [DO] seems to be the least well understood practitioner.

And so, I thought this essay from Very Well Health might be helpful to all our Medical Executive-Post readers and subscribers [Differences Between a DO Physician and an MD – Comparing Osteopathic and Allopathic Medical Training].
