Osteopathic Medical Student Resources and Advice

We polled all osteopathic medical students on their top resources and advice for getting through all aspects of medical school. All students were surveyed on the same topics. We got 338 total responses from students from 35 osteopathic medical schools! There were 91 first year students, 82 second year students, 69 third year students, 87 fourth year students, 1 OMM Fellow and 8 unknown responders.  The OMM Fellow and Unknown responses were included in those of other students.

Below are their responses!

Please note, these are all based solely on responses from osteopathic medical students in a voluntary survey and COSGP does not support any resources over others. This is simply a platform for information sharing between osteopathic medical students.
