This category contains osteopathic practitioner's homepages and clinic websites. In the U.S. D.O.'s are doctors of osteopathy and are complete physicians, licensed to perform surgery and prescribe medicine. In other countries, D.O.'s are diplomates of osteopathy who mostly restrict their practice to OMT (osteopathic manipulative treatment) and do not prescribe medicine or perform surgery.
Sites listed here will represent institutions and courses for osteopaths.
There is currently no description created for this category.
Osteopathic hospitals are accredited by the American Osteopathic Association through the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program which was originally developed starting in 1943. The program is recognized by Medicare, the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988, and the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) as one of two US deeming authorities for the federal government.
This category is for national and international organizations serving the osteopathic medical community.
