Pre-Osteopathic Medicine at UH Mānoa
Medical doctors, or physicians, are highly trained healthcare professionals who perform medical examinations, diagnose illnesses, prescribe drugs, and treat patients suffering from injury or disease. “Doctors of osteopathic medicine practice a ‘whole person’ approach to health care; rather than just treating your specific symptoms, osteopathic physicians focus on treating you as a whole.”
