Pre-osteopathy is NOT a major at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
It is a statement of your intention to go to osteopathy school someday. Our pre-medicine advising will help you prepare for osteopathy programs around the country.
Osteopathic medicine provides all of the benefits of modern medicine including prescription drugs, surgery, and the use of technology to diagnose disease and evaluate injury. It also offers the added benefit of hands-on diagnosis and treatment through a system of therapy known as osteopathic manipulative medicine. Osteopathic medicine emphasizes helping each person achieve a high level of wellness by focusing on health promotion and disease prevention.
