I matched at LVH in PA. I rotated there and thought it was a good fit for me. Let me know if you have any further questions. Take care.Anyone here participate in the osteopathic match? Where are you headed next year?
Can we please bury the title "osteopath"? It is an outdated word that has not been used in decades and continues to be ressurected by those who don't know better.
I don't get it. Isn't your accreditation society called American Osteopathic Association? Isn't a "DO" an osteopathic doctor? How is it the language of the uninformed?
Correct. The problem lies in the fact that the actual word osteopath does not necessarily mean the same thing. In fact, that's what they call purely manipulators (who are not fully accredited doctors) in other countries such as England, if I'm not mistaken. The connotation for that word these days just isn't the same as what it originally once was.
Oh, so just the abbreviation offends? Just checking since I don't want DOs to look down on me
