The best way for others not to think a DO is inferior to an MD is to freakin STOP talking about it and scaring off the pre-meders who are going to have this biased thought and once they become MDs think DOs are inferior and the cycle goes on. If just everyone comes to the notion that DO=MD (they can practice and do the SAME EXACT PROCEDURES as MDs) then no one will bash the other. And there wont be too many DO vs Carrib questions, or how do you explain being a DO to relatives or patients, or lets rank DO schools to help the DO reputation.

The best way to help the DO reputation is to stop comparing it to the MD program and be proud of it, period! No justifications, no explainations, no worrying about explaining yourself to others (who gives a crap if someone bashes you for your title: One senerio, they are either MDs and you get the same pay as them so who gives a crap. The other senerio is people who don't know jack **** about medicine and their opinion is too idiotic to even worry about or consider. :thumbup:

PS

I don't know crap about the AOA, but I think they should get their act together when it comes to standarizing their exams, requiring this and that, can not practice in so and so states if you did not do so and do DO internship. Make it Universal and stop freaking trying to separate it from Medicine that it confuses people and future students, all in all Just make everything standarized and every state law the same and consider DO as MD +OMM period.

I mean no offense, but maybe YOU should be the first to take your own advice. Consider not starting any more threads with "MD vs. DO" in the title or first post.

Take care.

Good advice.

Nothing good comes out of threads like this. Closing.
