they both make about the same average salary per year, its all about what you specialize in. my dads an MD and half his friends that are DO's make twice as much as him per year so it all depends. its also depends what state you start your practice in, only 6 states as far as i know accpet d.o.

if you are a DO you can apply to MD residencies -- i know this is true at least for texas -- so in that case you'd be making the exact same amount
