I spent the morning shadowing an OMM doc at PCOM (for those at PCOM it was Dr. Nicholas)and it was really an interesting experience. I have read up on the technique but reading does not due justice to actually seeing it performed on patients. I was surprised by how much physical contact there is with the patient. Just wanted to suggest to other applicants out there that if you have the means, you should see OMM for yourself. I think it will give you an idea of how osteopathic medicine can differ from allopathic medicine, at least it did for me.
