Osteopathy is a branch of medicine that treats body systems as an integrated whole, rather than as discrete units. DOs receive the same basic training as MDs. Many DOs choose to practice primary care, which is defined as the "first contact" and continuing care for patients with undiagnosed signs or symptoms of disease, and ongoing management of diagnosed conditions.
