United States

The practice of osteopathic medicine is regulated in the US at the state level. All osteopathic physicians must be licensed by the state licensing board in order to practise in that state.

 

US-trained osteopathic physicians are licensed to practise the unlimited scope of medicine, which includes prescribing all controlled substances as designated by the US Drug Enforcement Administration in its relevant schedules.

 

UK-trained osteopaths do work in the US, but are required to use a different professional title, such as 'manual therapist'.
