I am now a paid "employee" at the school. I started my OMT Fellowship this month. That means I am getting paid, and my last year of tuition will be paid for. WOOHOO!!!
I even have my own desk.
I will be spending this extra year doing a lot of things. My main focus through the fellowship is to improve my OMT skills, Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment. This is the adjustment component of becoming an osteopathic physician. This is somewhat similar to chiropractic. I will also be helping run the first and second year med student labs, lead fellow reviews prior to tests, do weekly tutoring, and doing a research project. Each month I will also be on different clinicals. Man I'm going to be busy.
