I, for one, and thousands of patients could as well. And I think I could make a good case when I have a patient walk of out my office physically feeling better after a few manipulative techniques than to just have them walk out with a prescription in hand.<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size="2">Originally posted by amnesiac:

Ya know, you never see these kinds of posts on the pre-osteopathic forum. My two cents is that they are very similar...but DOs can take the USMLE and the COMLEX whereas MDs can only take the USMLE. Go figure!

MD's don't take the complex b/c we DON'T want to go into their residencies, which are in backward community hospital, or "glorified nursing homes" as I read on another post. DO's had to the USMLE b/c many of them want to come to allopathic residencies which are located in state of the art academic centers (at least a lot of them). Please get your premed facts straight.</font>
