This research explored not only the role of alternative medical programs in allopathic medical schools but also examined the attitudes of physicians in both areas of health care. Twenty-three physicians, about half of whom were MDs and half who were DOs, were interviewed. Additionally, visits were made to three osteopathic medical schools to tour their facilities, interview personnel, and study their curricula. The similarities and differences in allopathic and osteopathic medicine were then assessed.
