    Osteopathic to MD

    Hello!

    Are there any international schools which exist that would be able to grant an MD degree to someone who has already graduated from a US DO school?

    US trained DO's are already licensed to practice in the USA. Some seek the MD diploma from a foreign medical school so they can in turn practice overseas ie: volunteer work, medical sales, etc. The DO has limited utility outside the USA. Unlike in the States, foreign DO schools are equivalent to US Chiropractic schools. However, the US licensed DO is certainly a "Physician and Surgeon"!

    So with UST being an iffy choice are there any other schools that can grant an MD degree to a US D.O.? I was interested in practicing medicine outside the united states (not sure which country yet) so having an MD will be much more beneficial.

    Why would anyone not already a medical educator be “writing” the steps? I know that US Med school
    Professors submit questions for the exam, but other than them, who else would be concerned about “writing”an exam? Certainly not students, they are the ones answering the questions, not submitting them. Am I writing my? (Are you Canadian?) 😜
