Are DOs and MDs the Same?

Like allopathic physicians (MDs), osteopathic physicians (DOs) are trained to diagnose and treat medical problems using every treatment modality available, including the use of drugs and surgery. DOs and MDs often train side by side in their residencies. However, doctors who utilize osteopathic manual medicine and cranial osteopathy have thousands of hours in additional training which allows them to diagnose and treat disorders and disease in ways which are unique to the profession.
