i've posted this thread on osteopathic forum but i would like to obtain the opinions for pre-DO's out there. If AMA would grant a MD degree for those DO students who went through allopathic residency and other 'academic requirement' upon graduation from DO schools. who would take this option? i personally believe this option would give the truly DO physicians who use OMT techniques a more consolidating identity. more orless, this would also prevent the so called 'dichotomy' among DO themselves. on the other hand, this option would give other DO physiscans (e.g. many subspecialized docs)the ease of explaning the letters behind their name. this idea should make both sides happy, perhaps i should submit this idea to AMA. what do you think?
