Abstract

We issue a call for an "osteopathic medical renaissance" in teaching osteopathic principles and osteopathic manipulative techniques. This article describes a seminar series in the postdoctoral training program at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific. We ask osteopathic physicians to enhance their manual dexterity skills to better serve as role models for physicians-in-training. We challenge osteopathic physicians to stimulate a renewed emphasis in teaching distinctive osteopathic medical care.
