I am first year D.O. student and this question is mainly for German med students or anybody else who has any relating information. How can an American trained physician, M.D. or D.O., practice in Germany ? I know that osteopathic manipulation as such in Germany is only practiced by naturopaths, or "Heilpraktiker". That is not my question. I would like to know how an American D.O. can work in Germany in the full extend of his medical specialty equal to German trained MD's. (Visa is not an issue) Any input would be greatly appreciated.
