Saturday, March 5, 2016 in Lebanon, OR: All about Osteopathic Medicine!

Did you know that DO doctors are licensed for exactly the same work and responsibilities as MD doctors?

This is a very early notice about an inexpensive all-day conference. Driving time to Lebanon OR is about 6 hrs one way, so you’ll need accommodation for the night before. I have visited this campus and learned a lot about DO medicine.

The DO medical school in Yakima, WA also has an annual visitation day: normally the first Saturday in April. Yakima is about a 2.5 hour drive from Seattle. I have visited there as well and highly recommend it.
