If MD schools tried to teach "blood letting" or something, i'm sure someone would stand up and call BS
I really dont know what the deal is. I know cranial is on the comlex so technically it needs to be taught. So change would need to come from COCA/AOA and that will never happen. I considered writing an e mail to the dean/president about my views on teaching a debunked methodology at an american medical school (and one sometimes considered as the best DO school)..but decided it wouldnt change anything.
Most of my classmates have adopted a "just keep ur head down and run" methodology about OMM and the BS that is taught. I am only a few months away from 3rd year so my OMM days are numbered as well...and nothing I say or do will benefit myself or my class. Earlier this year I tried to get a few of my classmates to get a petition started about some issues...but everyone was too scared. Frankly, being that I was a complete dip**** in 2004 and made my username contain my birthday, and thus I am identifiable, I am a bit scared to post anything in public like this too.
