On November 8, 2023, the International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities passed a historic resolution acknowledging the equivalency of DOs and MDs trained in the United States.

“This marks a significant step forward in fostering unity and understanding about osteopathic medicine in medical regulation worldwide. It will help to eliminate barriers for DOs seeking opportunities to practice abroad,” said AACOM President and CEO Robert A. Cain, DO.
