Typically people interested in pursuing an MD (Medical Doctor) or a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy) have a four year undergraduate degree with an emphasis on science courses. Both MDs and DOs complete four years of basic medical education.
After medical school, and after completing a residency program (typically two to six years of additional training), MDs and DOs will have the necessary skills to practice in an area like family medicine. Some will also enter specialty areas such as psychiatry, surgery or obstetrics. Both MDs and DOs must pass comparable (or even identical) state licensing examinations.
MDs and DOs practice in fully accredited and licensed hospitals and medical centers. The MDs and DOs on staff at Family Medical Center of La Grange have admitting rights to AMITA Helath Adventist Medical Center La Grange and AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center Hinsdale .
