How to apply to Osteopathic Medical School | AACOM

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. This allows competitive applicants to pursue their medical career in the United States.

Becoming a doctor of Osteopathic Medicine is of particular interest to non-traditional applicants and non-traditional students applying to Osteopathic Medicine (DO). Following an Osteopathic Medical degree, students can choose to pursue allopathic medical residencies for osteopathic medical residencies to advance their career path.

Difference between Medical Doctorate (MD) and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (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.

At MedApplications™ our medical doctors specialize in helping students apply to, and gain successful entry to Osteopathic Medical programs. We specialize in DO programs by knowing first-hand what admissions committees are looking for.

Receive personalized editing and the support services you need to get admitted

Each year, the application process becomes increasingly competitive. AMCOMAS course classification, DO medical school application requirements and increased competition mean that it now takes better grades, more research experience, and more extracurriculars to secure an interview at a US medical school.

Luckily there is one centralized US DO Application service called AACOMAS. Make your DO application count and take advantage of your shot at a US medical school interview and acceptance. The expert team MedApplications has in-depth knowledge of each US medical school and what is expected from a successful applicant.

Osteopathic Medical School Interviews (DO Interviews)

The Osteopathic Medical School Interview is challenging, specifically emphasizing why you want to pursue a career as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. Our medical doctors have first-hand clinical and interview experience in preparing students to be successful in the Osteopathic medical interview.

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.

Applicants who are selected for Osteopathic Medical School interviews following their submission of the AACOMAS application, NSU Application, MCAT Scores and Letters of Recommendation must participate in a daylong interview process. Many Osteopathic medical schools provide an orientation, meeting with a COM Academic Admissions Counsellor and provide tours of the medical facilities. Our medical coaches specialize in the Osteopathic Medical School Interview.
