Resource - Student Case Studies

See How Other Students are Using Osteopathic Principles and Pratice with Patients 

Back to Resources Page


Student case studies are an area we're actively working to promote and share. So many students have stories of that "one experience" where they realized the value of applying Osteopathic Principles and Practice (OPP) to their patients. As students submit them, we'll be using this page to help share.

Please share your cases with us. We'll take SOAP notes, narratives, case presentations, and even photos of you being a stylish OMS in your white coat - Nothing fancy needed!
