M.D. and D.O.

We have both Medical Doctors (M.D.s) and Doctors of Osteopathy (D.O.s) practicing at The Iowa Clinic. The main difference is in the type of four year medical school they attend (medical or osteopathic). Following medical school, both obtain graduate medical education through internships and residencies. Like M.D.’s, D.O.’s may choose to practice in any specialty area. Each must pass similar examinations for licensure and board certification.
