    Hey all of you seasoned DO folks, I have 2 questions:

    1) What DO programs take the PBL approach to the first 2 years of school?

    2) What programs emphasize preventive care, diet, and exercise as part of the holistic approach to medicine? This is a part of medicine that I find especially intriguing, and would love the oppurtunity to incorporate it into my medical philosophy.

    Any comments or suggestions?

    Tiffany,

    WesternU advertises a strong emphasis in wellness and prevention. This includes nutrition and exercise. However, when I interviewed there, they did not provide specific information about classes in their curriculum that verified it.

    UNECOM teaches a nutrition class to their students and has strong community/public health approach. You should definitely check them out.

    KCOM also offers a nutrition class.

    There may be more,

    Good luck

    I'll add a tidbit by saying that I asked the PBL question during my interview at Western. I think that they have a class-by-class basis for PBL: it's up to the professor. For instance, one of the three interviewers was a microbio prof., and he said he takes a PBL approach to part of his class (where each student has to do some research to answer a question/questions).

    Hope this is a bit helpful. By the by, I would venture a guess to say that Osteopathy itself embraces preventative care, diet and exercise: it should come across (if not explicitly, then implicitly) at all osteo schools...
