Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine where the graduates of an inaugural class of a college of osteopathic medicine came from, what influenced their school selection, how their osteopathic medical school experience affected them, and how they chose what and where they would study after graduation as well as where they would practice. These data have significant implications for the osteopathic profession and its future recruitment efforts into the profession and into its postgraduate programs.
