What Is Osteopathic Medicine?

Osteopathic medicine is the fastest-growing medical field in the U.S., according to the U.S. Bureau of Health Professions. Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine are trained to look at the whole person from their first days of medical school, which means they see each person as more than just a collection of organ systems and body parts that may become injured or diseased. Today, more than 25 percent of medical students in the United States are training to be osteopathic physicians.
