Hi all, I was asked last night why DO students do not believe that the DO and the MD profession should merge. I was told...."The professions are 95% the same, so why shouldn't they be merged together." Since I am not a med student yet, I thought I would ask for the opinions of our great DO med students here on SDN. I know we have had posts about this topic, but I was wondering if someone asked you today what would you say to them??? Any help would be great. The question is ....... ""'Since the two professions are 95% the same, then why shouldn't we merge DOs and MDs together?"
