Hello,
I will be interviewing this week (first DO). I did shadow some DO's for a time but i never got to see manipulative medicine being used...which was sad. A DO gave me a book though and I have looked at many techniques. My question is, did any interviewers ever bring up whether or nto you actually viewed manipulative medicine in person? I am interviewing at NYCOM and UMDNJ. Thanks. Any suggestions about this issue are greatly appreciated. :)

I interviewed at quite a few DO schools and about half asked what I thought about OMT. I pretty much explained I was interested in it yet every physician I shadowed was too busy to use it. (I shadowed around 7-8 physicians) I was perfectly honest about it. I STILL have not seen OMT yet and I was accepted to every DO school I interviewed at. So, go in, be honest, and have fun!
