In todays world of healthcare the DOs compete for and go through the same specialty residency programs as the MDs. The abilities of each individual doc are person specific, not based on their pathway to get there.

Both receive the same training, exams and licensing. Many if not all DO'S take a holistic approach to medicine. Many MD'S go on to specialize in a discipline while many DO'S are PCP'S. Both are qualified, licensed and base results on science.

There is no real difference in the end, as D.O. degree physicians are often participants in residency programs sponsored by M.D. medical schools. Some of the finest specialists I have worked with in several states have osteopathic degrees.
