hi i'm a second year undergrad student at umaine. i've been looking into d.o. schools because i like the osteopath philosophy. a d.o. came to speek with our health professions club a couple weeks ago, and she said something about how osteopathic medicine is based mostly on theories. people aren't sure why the manipulation works, it just does. i tend to believe only in things that can be scientifically proven. will my beliefs and the osteopathic beliefs clash when i get to d.o. school? and also, is anyone currently attending western university? if so, any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated. thanks!!
