Celebrating Osteopathic Medicine

April 27, 2016


Students and faculty from PCOM and GA-PCOM celebrated the institution’s osteopathic heritage during National Osteopathic Medicine (NOM) Week, April 17-23. Activities included a NOM Week opening reception; a cupcake decorating event; and a discussion on neuromusculoskeletal medicine with John Tortu, DO ’00.

Current and future osteopathic physicians also shared why they decided to pursue osteopathic medicine through the #WhyIDO campaign, comprising short videos and white boards on display at both campuses.
