DO vs DO vs DO

What are the differences between DO, DO & DO?

There are three different types of DO granted by osteopathic educational institutes globally.

The first DO is Doctor of Osteopathy and also known as doctor of osteopathic medicine. It is awarded only in the USA to those American style osteopathic physicians who do surgery and prescribe medications.

The second DO is Diploma in Osteopathy, offered in the province of Quebec in Canada, and most European countries. This is European style manual osteopathy diploma.

The third DO is Doctor of Osteopathy issued by National University of Medical Sciences and others indicating a doctoral degree in European style manual osteopathy.

All of the above education takes about 4 years to be completed.
