Hi! I was wondering if you all could speak to couple issues. First, it is my understanding that few, if any, osteopathic medical schools are directly affiliated with or attached to a teaching hospital. This, in contrast to just about all MD schools having their own hospitals. Is this a concern? How does this affect teaching? It seems a somewhat odd arrangement to me. Second, and stemming from the first question, I am of the impression that most third and fourth year clinical rotations at osteopathic schools must consequently be arranged by the students themselves. The teaching in these years is very unstructured, often far off-campus, and in quality directly relates to the individual student's self-starting and motivation to arrange something didactically useful. So, if I am wrong on any of these points please correct me. Mostly, I am looking for any and all related comments. Hey, thanks!
