How Do an MD and a DO Differ?

An MD and DO are both fully licensed physicians, trained in diagnosing and treating illnesses and disorders and providing preventive care. However, the foundation of osteopathic medicine is that individuals are more than their body parts. Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine focus on how all body systems are interconnected, and how each affects the others.
