my name is Valerie Nerini and I'm a student at Truman State University (located in Kirksville, Missouri--home of the very first college of osteopathic medicine). I'm currently working on a study regarding the differences in the attitudes and impressions (possible misconceptions) towards osteopathic medicine held by freshman non premed, freshman premed, and junior and senior premed. The study will also be expanded to include first year osteopathic medical students. I was wondering if anyone has any possible insight regarding any possible attitudes or misconceptions etc. held by society etc. towards osteopathic medicine. I would greatly appreciate any information anyone else is able to provide. You can contact me at [email protected] THANKS!
