Osteopathic physicians, also known as doctors of osteopathy (DO), specialize in the medical care of the whole person, rather than focusing on a specific area of the body. As osteopathic medicine continues to grow in popularity, these physicians are continuously in demand. Whether you're searching for a new permanent, temporary or travel position, All Physician Jobs has the opportunity for you!
After completing eight years of schooling, a residency and sometimes a fellowship, you can find osteopathic physicians in variety of medical facilities. Although, D.O. jobs are most commonly found in private practices or outpatient centers, and some physicians may work in general hospitals. Within the next decade, doctors of osteopathic medicine have an expected career growth of over 20 percent, providing an excellent job market!
Because doctors of osteopathic medicine are typically the primary care providers for their patients, they tend to work more "normal" hours than many other physicians. An average week will probably include between 40 and 60 hours, and a work day may be from 8am-4pm or 9am-5pm, with extra hours in the evenings and weekends to suit the needs of the patients. The average salary for osteopathic physicians is similar to other primary care physicians, ranging between $140,000 and $180,000, depending on the location of the practice, along with many other factors.
