Allopathic/osteopath: Allopatic doctors go to traditional medical schools and get md degree and practice mainstream medicine osteopathic doctors go to an osteopathic med school and read the same books and learn the same diseases, besides that they are trained in osteopathic manipulations.They can get the same residencies and fellowships as mds, and many of them just practice mainstream medicines in all specielities.
