What impressed you positively?

"The Chairman of the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine department gave us a quick brief on the many uses of OMT, very impressive! Stated that MD schools are starting to teach OMT to its students, under the course name of "Bio-Mechanics". Des Moines is a very nice city, extremely clean and progressive, definitely not "Hickville, USA". Would be a great city to raise a family. To choose between UHS-COM and DMU would be difficult. Both boast a 96% COMLEX Part 1 pass rate." Report Response
