What Is Osteopathic Medicine? What Is International Osteopathic Medicine? General FAQs Education, Schools & Training

Osteopathic Medicine in an International Context

The practice of osteopathic medicine outside of the United States varies. In many countries, osteopathic physicians have full practice rights, as DOs have in the United States. However, only in the U.S. are DOs trained as physicians. Outside the U.S. DO training is concentrated on OMM and practice rights are typically limited to manipulation. The most up-to-date information on this is available from the Osteopathic International Alliance (www.oialliance.org) and the American Osteopathic Association (www.osteopathic.org). Specificinformation about Canadian osteopathic medical practice is available from the Canadian Osteopathic Association (www.osteopathic.ca).

Admissions policies at U.S. osteopathic medical colleges vary with regard to applicants who are neither U.S. citizens nor hold perma-nent resident status in the United States. Each college’s listing in this book indicates whether it will consider applicants who are not U.S. citizens. Prospective applicants to osteopathic medical colleges should consider that in the typically seven-plus years between entering medical school and going into practice, the conditions and regulations on practice outside the United States may change significantly.

Prospective osteopathic physicians who are interested in participating in overseas medical mission and volunteer work will not encounter difficulties – participation in such programs is generally arranged by the spon-soring organization, and U.S. physicians— both DOs and MDs—have practice rights extended to them while participating in such programs. Many osteopathic colleges sponsor such programs, which may be open to participation by their students, faculty, and alumni.
