Studying to become a Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) is very similar to studying to become an Doctor of Medicine (M.D.). However, there are several differences. For more on this route to a medical career see the Osteopathy career page.
Below is an interview from a fourth year D.O. student, preparing to enter the world of residency. We hope it helps you learn more about osteopathy!
What is your career?
I like seeing children get better. There is something very special about saying goodbye to a child who you took care of in the hospital. I learned early on that you don't even need to speak the same language to make a special connection with a child and his/her family. I can't say I enjoy vaccinating, drawing blood or doing any procedure that causes pain or scares the child.
Are you married?
Yes, I got married in between college and medical school.
