http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/03/education/edlife/the-osteopathic-branch-of-medicine-is-booming.html?_r=0 I'm sure a fair proportion of you have read this article already but I'm posting it for all the people who haven't read it. The field of osteopathic medicine has grown enormously in recent years. More and more people are slowly learning about this field and D.Os are slowly becoming more mainstream. The admissions standards of D.O schools are slowly but surely going up as competition increases rapidly for D.O seats. Unfortunately some of the comments in the article do viciously attack D.O schools and how "easy" they are to get in. Overall though, I'm glad that people's opinions about D.O is changing, albeit slowly.
