Advancing the distinctive philosophy and practice of osteopathic medicine

OMP Report: Where We Practice

DOs are found in all 50 states and were historically concentrated in the Midwest. This distribution is shifting, with more osteopathic physicians located in the South and Northeast.

It’s expected that the influence of new and expanding osteopathic medical schools will continue to alter the pattern. Because physicians tend to practice where they train, the availability of residency programs will greatly influence where DOs practice.

Note: Counts based on preferred mailing address, which can be either home or business. Does not include 364 DOs whose address is unknown or outside the U.S.
