(Cochran, GA) – Aise Cannon, an admissions representative from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, recently visited Middle Georgia College to speak to students about the school’s various degree programs, including the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree and the graduate degree programs. The event was hosted by the MGC Science Club.
Osteopathic medicine focuses on the unity of all body parts, said Cannon. “It focuses on examining and treating the person, not just the symptoms,” she said. “Osteopathic medicine views the body holistically, and concentrates on preventative medicine. It strives to fix the underlying problem.”
Dr. Sharon Mozley-Standridge, Associate Professor of Biology and the Science Club Advisor, said that the Science Club members enjoyed Cannon’s presentation. “She spoke about the differences between osteopathic medicine and the more traditional allelopathic medicine which was something new to most MGC students,” she said. “They appreciated her insight into what medical schools are looking for with regards to grades, courses, and the application process. We hope to have her come back and speak to us again in the future.”
