Interested in Learning about DO School?

Have you ever considered becoming an osteopathic doctor, or a D.O.? While the training for both M.D. (allopathic) and D.O. programs looks quite similar, a D.O. focuses on healing the whole person. A D.O. will partner with their patients in order to support them in being well, often asking questions about the patient’s environment and lifestyle to assess how both might be impacting their overall health. While the content knowledge that both an M.D. and D.O. gain will often times be similar, D.O. programs include additional training in the musculoskeletal system.

We are fortunate to have an osteopathic medical program here in Colorado, Rocky Vista University (RVU). RVU offers a comprehensive D.O. program through its College of Osteopathic Medicine, as well as a Master’s program in Biomedical Sciences and a Physician Assistant program. On Wednesday, May 9, two representatives from admissions at RVU will visit campus to educate us on the D.O. admissions process and pathway! This program is being offered in partnership with Career & Professional Development and Pre-Professional/Allied Health Advising.
If you are interested in meeting one-on-one with an admissions counselor from RVU, please sign up online. Students who are planning to apply to D.O. programs for this upcoming cycle will be given priority for the one-on-one office hours, and a resume review with Kimberly White, Career Advisor to undergraduates in NSM, is required before attending office hours.
Any student interested in learning more about what it means to be a D.O. and how to get there is welcome to attend the information session immediately following the scheduled office hours. The information session will be held at 6:00pm in ECS 410. We hope you will join us!
