How are DOs educated and trained?
Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, complete four years of osteopathic medical school, with an emphasis on preventive medicine and comprehensive patient care.
They are trained to recognize the interrelated unity among all systems of the body, each working with the other to promote overall health and wellness.
Upon graduating from medical school, DOs complete internships, residencies and fellowships. This training lasts three to eight years and prepares them to become licensed and board-certified.
