"Seeing firsthand how the traditional medical system failed my father due to lack of prevention and information, I discovered the world of osteopathic medicine and its unique role that might have changed his and, subsequently, my life. Holistically treating patients and their illnesses while focusing on prevention is exactly what today's health care needs – it is exactly what my father needed. Osteopathic physicians you have the opportunity to prevent disease in a way that no other physician in the world can. To be able to treat the mind, body and spirit the way A.T. Still describes will absolutely change lives for the better. Since its inception, the Georgia Campus of PCOM has fostered an atmosphere that could only be described as familial and supportive. The students here care for one another through the ups and the downs. Yes, medical school has its rough points, but at the end of the day, we are all in it together. Knowing that I have an entire class to turn to means more to me than anything else."
