Dear Dr Levine,
Hello, I am an osteopathic family medicine physician in New York. I recently read an article about Michigan State University's visit to South Korea to petition for recognition and medical licensure for osteopathic physicians in Korea. I want to commend you, Dean Strampel, and Associate Dean Nassiri, for addressing this issue. I speak for many Korean American osteopathic physicians in that we would love to have the ability to practice medicine in Korea if we elect to do so.
The broader issue is that advocacy for equal practice rights and recognition as US DOs throughout the world is paramount, and I am hopeful for our future under your leadership! Thank you from my bottom of my heart.
