    Is it possible for a DO to practice overseas?

    There was a thread about DO schools vs. Caribbean MD schools and some argued that DOs are not accepted overseas. Is this true? I know that DOs became fully licensed doctors relatively recently in the United States, so it wouldn't be too surprising if DOs weren't accepted overseas. What if a DO degree holder passes the USMLE (allopathic) exams and does an allopathic residency?

    I've lived in several different countries and I could foresee myself wanting to go overseas in the future. I have met a lot of American-trained MDs working overseas. I have never met any DOs though. Of course, there are far fewer DOs than there are MDs anyway.

    DOs can work in countries around the world depending on which ones but in general, it is my understanding that the positions are relatively few and far inbetween!

    take a look for yourself, this is much more than "relatively few and far in between"
