Hi all,

I’m a bit confused about licensure for DO’s in PA. I’ve read a bit about how we have to complete an osteopathic approved internship year in order to get licensed for practice - is this in addition to a normal internship year? What if we are not seeking AOA licensure and are just seeking acgme licensure?

Any clarification on the licensing process in PA would be greatly appreciated - just thinking about completing residency in PA and want to know about additional hoops for licensure...

Closing thread, I think you're better off in the other forum that you posted on but my understanding is you only have to do one internship regardless. I don't know 100% if a MD internship would qualify for DO licensure, but the other way around should be okay. Your PGY2 training program should be able to answer that if not your internship.
