What is a D.O?
A D.O., or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, is a physician who combines today's medical technology with osteopathic manipulative medicine to diagnose and treat patients as a whole, rather than merely a disease or illness.
Who are we?
Pre-SOMA at UCR is a local chapter of the undergraduate division of SOMA. We strive to educate prospective medical school applicants about the osteopathic medical profession, and prepare them for entrance to osteopathic medical school.
The Pre-Student Osteopathic Medical Association at UCR was founded in Spring 2014.
