Hello,Originally posted by DOnut
your state osteopathic school is the least expensive of them all. I wish I was a Texas state resident for that reason. Here on Long Island, the cost of living is crazy, and the school is almost 30K to boot.
Sorry for not answering the posters question. I just felt like writing something.
great story~ hope your delivery went smoothly...Originally posted by maysqrd
You will be taught OMM at every DO school but whether you decide to use it once you are in residency and practice is always a choice that you have to make for yourself. I am going to an osteopathic school because I prefer the state of mind of osteopathic medicine. It is more open and not so judgemental as allopathy. Hear is a reason why: when I was pregnant with my daughter, I awoke one day suffering from the most horrible head pain I could ever imagine. It literally felt like someone was swinging a baseball bat against my head every 20 minutes. I was only 12 weeks pregnant and could not take any of the medication prescribed for a migraine. Neither could I take any pain pills. Cranial therapy and pressure point message was the only thing that got me thru 1 1/2 weeks of torture and pain. The MD obstetrician I was seeing wanted to give me Vicodin! No thanks!
It is just nice to be able to give patients options because I was given additional training to be a DO.
