What’s the Difference Between a DO and an MD?

Let’s start with some definitions.

DO: Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine
  • Licensed physicians trained in “whole body” wellness and treatment techniques in muscle and joint manipulation in addition to mainstream treatments.
Allopathy Vs. Osteopathy

In the US, there are two main branches of registered physician:

  • Allopathy: In this path, doctors train in modern, sometimes referred to as “Western”, medicine to treat symptoms and diseases. Doctors who train in this branch are licensed as Doctors of Medicine (MD)
  • Osteopathy: These doctors have the same education and licensing exams as MDs but have additional training in muscle and joint manipulation. Doctors who train in Osteopathy are licensed as Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) and have the same residency training and choices as MDs.

To begin practicing medicine, DOs and MDs must take specific licensing exams:

  • COMLEX-USA: This test assesses osteopathic medical knowledge in addition to allopathic medical knowledge in order to become licensed as a DO in the USA.
  • USMLE: This test assesses allopathic medical knowledge and is required to become licensed as an MD.
NRMP: “National Resident Matching Program®”
  • The organization that administers the “Match.” In the match, the NRMP pairs residency applicants with a residency program.

Note that prior to the 2020 Match, DOs had access to a “pool” of residencies reserved for which only they could match. The current system has merged DO and MD residencies so that every applicant has the same “chance” for matching in their chosen specialty.

For more on how to maximize your match chances and how the “Merge” has changed residency applications, see THE MATCH: Everything You Need to Maximize Your Residency Chances

Pediatrics is DO-Friendly

Looking at the % of spots filled by DOs in the 2022 Match, we can see pediatrics was relatively DO-friendly and ranked 4th with 19% of positions filled by DOs.

In addition, the match rate for DOs in pediatrics (97%) was the highest. This shows DOs had a very good chance for acceptance in Pediatrics in the 2022 Match:

The Most DO-Friendly Pediatrics Residency Programs

Pediatrics is not only a DO-friendly specialty, but it also has a high % of DOs in residency programs. While most pediatrics programs do accept a high number of DOs, some programs are likely to fill most spots with DOs. For example, 21 pediatrics residencies in the most recent GME census had DO percentages of 50% or higher. Two had DO rates of 100%: Oklahoma University and OMECO Program.

Here is a list of the most (and least) competitive pediatrics programs for DOs. It includes data from the most recent National GME Census Survey. Percentages are of all residents in the program in 2020.
