Is it easier to get an MD or DO?

Yes – it was statistically easier to get into MD school! When applying to residency programs, MD applicants are often considered to be more competitive than DO applicants. As was previously stated, it is now typically harder to get into an osteopathic school, than an allopathic school.

What kind of doctor is a DO?

A doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) is a fully trained and licensed doctor who has attended and graduated from a U.S. osteopathic medical school. A doctor of medicine (M.D.) has attended and graduated from a conventional (allopathic) medical school.
