    What is a DO?

    The premise of osteopathic medicine is that people are more than just the sum of their body parts. Doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) take a holistic approach to medicine. Osteopathic medical schools espouse the osteopathic philosophy and generally teach a four-year curriculum, which embraces preventive medicine and holistic patient care.
