Narrative

Studying to be a physician is more than just learning the scientific and medical concepts – it’s also learning how to interact with others. Because of that, I was attracted to the philosophy of osteopathic medicine, which emphasizes the treatment of patients as people, not as a group of symptoms. My time as an osteopathic medical student has further solidified my desire to spread the knowledge I have learned to those who need it. As an OMM Fellow, I hope to teach those students who have come after me the importance of holistic patient care, as well as develop my own skills in OMM to better serve the community.
