Shadowing Opportunities

Osteopathy in Action

Shadowing an osteopathic physician is a great way to gain insight and understanding of our particular medical discipline. Osteopathic physicians are trained in the same manner as allopathic physicians, but they also receive additional training in osteopathic manipulative medicine. This distinct approach to medicine allows osteopathic physicians to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of their illness.

A Firsthand Look at Osteopathy

By shadowing an osteopathic physician, you’ll get a firsthand look at how this approach is used in practice. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the osteopathic philosophy. This can be an invaluable experience for anyone considering a career in osteopathic medicine.

If you are interested in learning more about osteopathic medicine, there are shadowing opportunities. Please contact the physician’s office directly to arrange a shadowing experience.
