About Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine
DOs are trained to look at the ‘whole person’ – which means they see each individual as more than a collection of body parts that may become injured or diseased. They are taught that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” and osteopathy students learn to integrate the patient into the healthcare process as a partner. They are trained to communicate with people from diverse backgrounds and are given the opportunity to practice their skills in the classroom with 'mock patients'. Because of this holistic approach to medicine, about 60 percent of DOs choose to practice in the primary care disciplines of Family Practice, general Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics.
