The merging of MDs and DOs: A unification of training standards

From the KevinMd.com blog:

More than a century of American medical history was turned on its ear recently by the announcement that the groups that accredit medical residencies will unify their standards. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you failed to understand the significance (or notice at all). But this should be viewed as good news across the land. As someone who trains doctors from both traditions, I certainly welcome a more level playing field.

It’s about time that there are common standards for MDs and DOs.  After all, don’t all states treat allopathic and osteopathic physicians the same and expect them to provide comparable healthcare to their patients?  Don’t PI lawyers sue them on the same grounds when there is a bad patient outcome?
