Very recently a popular scrub apparel company posted an image of a female doctor of osteopathic medicine.
This is not unusual but what was highlighted in the image is that the book was from the "For Dummies" series which breakdowns concepts for the simplest of readers. The book in question was upside down and was titled "Medical Terminology for Dummies".
This reminded me of the misconceptions that circulate regarding IMG's and also DO's.
In today's episode, Dr. Ruth Arumala
and myself discuss FAQs about international medical school (an MD route) versus osteopathic medical school (the DO route).
As an Obstetrician-Gynecologist with a practice in Mansfield, Texas, Dr. Ruth Arumala provides evidence based medical care to women of all ages at all aspects of their lives. Dr. Arumala specializes in the management of pregnancy, fibroids, PCOS, sexual dysfunction and menopause.
