At least that's what a reporter wrote in an article in the Star-Telegram. Here is the article. http://www.star-telegram.com/news/columnists/bud_kennedy/story/1089676.html WTF, Texas Osteopathic Medical Association? First, they sell the idea that "there's no difference between MD and DO" when starting the program in the 60's, then fight against their school offering both degees? It is actions like this that cause journalists to write completely untrue stuff like "mixing M.D.s with D.O.s is like telling dogs to bunk with cats." The last thing that DO's need is for people to think that they are in a war with MD's. And what is this commitment to "osteopathy" that they are talking about? We don't live in the UK. In the US, there is no such thing as an osteopath. There are chiropractors, and there are Osteopathic Physicians, but there are no osteopaths. According to the president of the AOA, we're not even supposed to refer to ourselves as osteopaths. Osteopathy is dead. DO's are physicians, not osteopaths. When are DO's going to get over this identity crisis?
