MD vs DO

There are 3 Osteopathic Texas medical schools and 12 Allopathic Texas medical schools, but what is the difference from a DO degree and an MD degree?

A Doctor of Medicine (MD) is a doctor who earned their degree from an Allopathic medical school. Allopathic medical schools are the most commonly attended by medical school students. These medical schools include pre-clinical studies and clinical training in hospitals. Medical students pursuing an MD degree will take the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE).

A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) is a doctor who earned their degree from an Osteopathic medical school. Approximately 20% of medical school students study at an Osteopathic Medical School. Though the curriculum is similar to an Allopathic medical school, Osteopathic programs place strong focus on holistic medicine as well as preventative care. In addition to medical school curriculum, osteopathic medical students complete 200 hours of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Osteopathic students take the Comprehensive Medical Licensing Medical Examination (COMLEX) as their state board exam.
