Osteopathic medical education places a strong emphasis on primary medical care. Approximately 60% of osteopathic physicians (DOs) choose to practice in the areas of family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics. Osteopathic medical schools have long been filling the void for medical education in rural and other medically underserved areas. Since 2006, five new osteopathic medical schools have opened. These medical schools are well positioned to help remedy the projected physician shortage by bringing health care services to some of our nation's traditionally underserved regions, including Appalachia, the Pacific Northwest and Harlem, N.Y.
