    Can anyone tell me the strengths/weaknesses of the the OMT programs at the various osteopathic schools? Even better would be a web site where I can find a comparison of the various OMT programs.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    KCOM department is pretty hardcore. They make the students put in a lot of hours and have several faculty members that were formerly faculty members at other schools. Plus if you look really hard you can see AT Still walking around.

    The stronger programs, in more or less descending order:

    1. KCOM

    2. UNECOM

    3. MSU-COM

    4. NYCOM or OUCOM

    After these five, the quality drops rapidly.
    Particularly weak programs can be found at UHS, OSU and PCOM. Des Moines and Nova do not shine in this department, either.
