Osteopathic medicine is for you What does it mean to be an osteopathic physician Doctors of osteopathic medicine D.O.s are fully licensed physicians just like their M.D. counterparts. They complete four years of medical school and a residency program that is linked to their specialization. D.O.s can be found practicing just about every medical specialty from pediatrics to geriatrics and neurology to sports medicine. D.O.s learn the osteopathic philosophy of looking at the whole person body mind and spirit and the persons whole life and lifestyle rather than just looking at his or her symptoms. They consider patients as partners in health care not just clients who need to be treated for something. A key part of every D.O.s education is learning manipulative medicine techniques. These techniques are used as part of treatment for a number of issues.
