One of the big decisions you will have to make prior to applying to medical school is whether you would like to become an osteopathic (D.O.) or allopathic (M.D.) physician. There are several differences and similarities between the two kinds of medicine.
Ultimately if your goal is to become a physician there is nothing wrong with becoming an osteopathic physician, particularly if you are interested in primary care. In fact, we recommend attending U.S. osteopathic medical schools over foreign allopathic schools.
