Get an in-depth look into the field of osteopathic medicine from Gina Moses, M.Ed. She addresses the nuances of osteopathic medical education and how that differs from allopathic medicine. Moses also highlights the growing need for medical practitioners in the United States and how physicians trained in osteopathic medicine are helping to ease the shortage of health care professionals as the number of students graduating from these institutions has risen dramatically during the past decade. Local, current students from osteopathic medical schools attend to demonstrate current techniques used in the profession, referred to as Osteopathic Manual Medicine.
