InsideTheBoards for the USMLE, COMLEX & Medical School

Osteopathy for MDs plus COMLEX vs. USMLE (or Both?) with Greg Rodden from the Med School Phys Podcast

March 19, 2018

This episode

In this episode, Stewart interviews Med School Phys host and 3rd year osteopathic medical student, Greg Rodden. They discuss strategy for the COMLEX vs. strategy for the USMLE and also provide an overview and introduction to osteopathic manipulative medicine for MD students/doctors. It's a fascinating dicussion, especially for the allopaths among us, who might not know much about this important part of their osteopathic colleague's education.
