A search for dually recognized programs turned up multiple threads on PG training. Are there any LCME & AOA licensing board combined program schools? If not, why not? How could this be changed? My prophylactic answer to the first response of "why do you want this?" is...I am worried about perceptions of my degree. I feel my school training is at least as rigorous as the majority of allo. programs. I am weary of the self-segregation of the Osteopathic profession. If osteopathy is as great as we tout, then we owe it to ourselves and future patients to incorporate this discipline into more practices. This would include agressive education of future physicians regardless of title.
