I just came across this site today and think that it is tremendous. I have a friend, I guess you could say a mentor, who graduated from KCOM back in the early eighties. He has always pushed it and talked about how good of a school he thought it was. Now that I am getting close to making a decision on where I would like to go to medical school (I should definitly say APPLY to medical school) all of the things he said are ringing in my ears. I have been studying the differences (advantages and DA) of MD and DO and I am very interested in the DO philosophy. It seems to fit into my belief system, and a perfect fit for my tentative future goals of the type of medicine I think I would like to practice. i am just interested in the personal feelings any students, past or present, may have concerning classwork, peers, facilities, teachers, work load etc. I am very interested in any information you can give me. I am at least familiar with Truman State because I just graduated from Pittsburg state in Ks and have even been to Kirksville once for a football game. Needless to say however, coach wasnt giving any med school tours. Hope to hear back!
