Triage I was the same way years ago, I thought some things that were not true.

Thats why I keep posting DO=MD, I find it hard to know the difference in real life between them.

Physician is the goal

I think that depends on what you specializes and on what state you practice. MD or DO the weigh the same they only differ on the field that they specialize.

Thanks!

MD qualification training is the most widely available and recognized type of medical training. Like the DO, it gives the option to practice in any of the medical specialties, but unlike the DO, the MD is internationally recognized as a medical degree. Thus, when practicing overseas, the MD is easier to negotiate with than is the DO, where the DO degree isn't always understood or recognized. Because they are a minority in American medicine, DOs are more likely than their MD counterparts to have to explain or even defend their training.
