In the field

Community engagement

Serve as an osteopathic brand ambassador by incorporating the “What is a DO?” elevator pitch into your conversations with patients, family and friends:

There are two types of fully licensed physicians in the U.S. – MDs and DOs. Our training and education are very similar and equally rigorous, but DOs come at the practice of medicine from a different philosophy. We tend to partner with our patients to help them get healthy and stay well.

You can also spread the word by stocking your office with brochures supporting the Doctors That DO brand awareness campaign.
