I know that we have seen a million posts out there similar to this but I'm still trying to grasp things, so please be patient. I know that allopathic medical schools tend to be more difficult to be accepted to than osteopathic med. Schools but what I don't understand is why? Are there any specialties that an M.D. can enter compared to a D.O.? Would an M.D. Make more money than a D.O. or does it not really matter? Is it sort of like the difference between a D.D.S. and a D.M.D. when dealing with dentistry? I have done research but most of the resources that try to explain the difference tend to give vague definitions. Any help would be appreciated.
