Osteopathic recognition matters: Medical students value the ‘DO difference’
Katherine Kirby, OMS III, has a plea for all osteopathic residency program directors. “In honor of my decision to pursue osteopathic medicine, please make the commitment to pursue osteopathic recognition,” urges Kirby, who attends Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine-Virginia Campus.
Charles Lopresto, OMS III, has been training at Southampton (NY) Hospital while he completes coursework at TouroCOM-Harlem. “I went to an osteopathic medical school and I want to continue to practice that way,” he says.
