Osteopathic Medicine Admissions Consulting
How to get into Osteopathic Medicine
Pursuing a career in Osteopathic Medicine (DO) through the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) has become an incredibly competitive pathway for students interested in pursuing Osteopathic medicine. One of the major advantages of Osteopathic Medicine is that traditionally, GPA cut-offs for DO schools and MCAT cut-offs for DO schools are lower than allopathic medical degrees.
Difference between MD and DO
The key difference between Osteopathic Medicine (DO) and Allopathic Medicine (MD) is that students are focused on learning the art of osteopathy, which involves the manipulation of health, function and human physiology. The holistic perspective on human health is one of the major determinants of Osteopathic medicine. Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM)is a combination of many allied health fields including, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Chiropractics and traditional medicine.

Osteopathic Medical School Applications (AACOM)
The AACOMAS Application is one of the most essential components to successfully getting into a DO medical school, in addition to high academic performance and a well-rounded candidate profile. The AACOMAS application includes multiple sections: AACOMAS Personal Statement, AACOMAS Experiences, AACOMAS Academic History, AACOMAS Achievements and AACOMAS Evaluations (Letters of Reference).
Osteopathic Medical School Interviews (DO Interviews)
At many DO schools, the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) has become the mainstay format for DO school interviews. However, the traditional panel style medical school interview and variations of the conversation style medical school interview are still implemented across the United States.

McGill Medicine (MD)
"MedApplications helped me with both my essay preparation which brought me to the big interview and with interview preparation. MedApplication's services provided me with not only an insight of how to tailor an application to bring out the best of my ability but it also gave me the confidence I needed to survive the MMIs.
Accepted to UWO Medicine (MD/PhD)
"I enrolled with Med Applications one month before my first interview. I had been preparing for interviews by reading books and discussing questions with friends and family, but I was still nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. I felt so much more comfortable after my session with MedApplications. My instructor was very knowledgeable and catered the session to what I needed work on (as I had both panel and MMI interviews, this was particularly beneficial). It was very useful to cover topics with someone who knew what to expect from an interview and could comment on the quality of my answers. All together the experience was extremely helpful and very reassuring; it significantly calmed my nerves during my interviews. There weren’t any questions I was surprised by in my interviews. I would definitely recommend a session for future students."
O uf T, UBC, McMaster
"I used MedApplications mock interview service because I wanted to practice and receive feedback from a current medical student. I found the mock interview helpful in identifying weaknesses in my answers and improving on them to make them stand out. I would recommend MedApplications to anyone who wants extra preparation to gain confidence for medical school interviews."
U of A
"I went into my first MedApplications session without a clue about what MMI's were or how to prepare for them. After meeting and practising with Eric and Kent, however, I learned all of the tips and skills I needed to ace the interview. They were incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging and their help gave me that extra boost of confidence on interview day. Thanks MedApplications!"
University of Ottawa Medicine
“I was accepted at Ottawa which was my ideal school and my only interview. Josh was absolutely wonderful and definitely part of my success! He was very helpful throughout the entire process 🙂
Mother of a High School student for a Pre-Med program
"Hi MedApplications, just to let you know that Isabelle got an offer from University of London St. George’s College. The competition this year was quite challenging. We would like to thank you and Sarah for your contribution to this achievement. Your services are excellent. Please count us among satisfied clients.”
McMaster University Medicine
"I used the MedApplications seminar and mock interview services before I had my interviews at Queen's and McMaster medical schools, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Their seminars were incredibly helpful in providing information about the interview process and ways to truly emphasize your best qualities in an interview. Their mock interview session was great as well as it gave me an opportunity to practice my interviewing style with a current medical student! If you are looking for a way to prepare for an interview as important as the ones for medical school, I would definitely recommend MedApplications."
