“While volunteering in a local hospital during my undergraduate years, I realized that health care is not just about treating the patient; it is also about patient education and preventive medicine.  This aspect of the osteopathic philosophy is one of the reasons I felt osteopathic medicine was a great fit for me.  My osteopathic medical training at VCOM has taught me to learn as much as I can not only about my patients’ medical history, but also about their lives, families, and careers to better serve and treat them as a physician.  VCOM was a great choice for me to pursue my osteopathic medical education.  We have a strong student body, and we work together to achieve our educational goals.  Our clinical faculty also works diligently to make sure we are learning both the skills and knowledge necessary to excel as osteopathic physicians.  My aspiration to offer a critical service to others is the basis from which I have built a foundation for my career in osteopathic medicine.”
