What is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine?
A DO, or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, is a complete physician just as MDs or allopathic physicians are. In fact, in the United States, both DOs and MDs are the only two types of complete physicians. How are DOs and MDs alike? Just like MDs, DOs complete four-year undergrad programs, four years of basic medical education and complete a residency program.
DOs and MDs work cohesively to enhance patient health, however, DOs bring an extra dimension to your healthcare:
  • DOs are trained as primary care physicians
  • DOs practice a “whole person” approach to medicine as opposed to treating specific symptoms or illnesses
  • DOs focus on preventive health care
  • DOs are trained in the musculoskeletal system – the body's interconnected systems of nerves, muscles, and bones. With this training, a DO is better equipped to understand the way an injury or illness in one part of your body can affect other areas of your body.
  • DOs incorporate Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) to diagnose injury and illness and to encourage your body’s natural tendency toward good health.

What is a Physician Assistant or PA?
Physician Assistants (PAs) are licensed health professionals who practice medicine with physician supervision. As part of the physician-PA team, PAs exercise autonomy in diagnosing and treating illnesses.

PAs deliver a broad range of medical and surgical services to diverse populations in both rural and urban settings throughout the United States. Their focus is patient care and their practice may include education, research, and administrative activities.

The Role of the Physician Assistant
PAs are highly skilled professionals educated to use the same medical procedures as their physician counterparts. For example, PAs take medical histories, perform physical examinations, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret laboratory tests, perform minor surgery and in most states, can prescribe medications.
Education
Physician assistant education is modeled on that of physicians, although it is shorter. All PA programs must meet the same stringent requirements for national accreditation.
