The American Association of Osteopathic Examiners is comprised of all osteopathic physicians who sit on state licensing boards, be it an osteopathic board or a composite board. All 50 states and the District of Columbia grant full, unlimited physician licensure for practice and surgery to osteopathic physicians.
As of November 2011, there are 14 osteopathic boards and 37 composite boards. Of these composite boards, 31 reserve a seat for osteopathic physicians, giving DO’s representation on a total of 45 of the 51 medical boards of the states and the District of Columbia.
