The only path to licensure and a spot in residency training in the United States, without an osteopathic medical degree, is by taking the USMLE.

There are no alternative pathways (I believe).

One thing you might consider is going through medical school again here in the US. One other thing you might want to consider is going to osteopathic school at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, where they have an "Accelerated Program for Emigre Physicians." It's an accelerated osteopathic medical program designed for people such as yourself who want to practice in the US as osteopathic physicians. You can check out their website at www.nyit.edu
