I am considering a pretty drastic career change to become a physician. Though I still have a LOT to consider, many of the reservations that I had about this change were mollified after reading this book.
The content was reassuring (yes you can be a physician without becoming a toady of the BigPharma, yes your skills from another career can prove useful and be respected by your colleagues, and, most importantly, yes you can make a real positive difference in people's lives!). It also helped to hear that students who did not study biology or chemistry as undergraduates, are not looked down upon or at a disadvantage when applying to most schools of osteopathy. Rather, they are actually valued for the uniques skills and knowledge they bring to the field.
I am now looking further into a career in medicine knowing that DO is the way for me.
So thank you, Dr. Cohn, for writing this guide. Thank you for introducing the field to me and thank you for having the wisdom to write the guide in an eye-catching way so that I couldn't help but check it out.
He may have been a little tough on the MD world on occasion. Although, I believe he tried to take as even handed of an approach as could be reasonably expected from his personal background.
I recommend this book to anyone considering medical school. Also, to anyone who does not know what exactly a DO is or what a DO does differently.
