The Health and Healing course is based on the osteopathic principle that “the body has the ability to heal itself”. It incorporates basic medical sciences to support foundational knowledge of homeostatic mechanisms. The course includes critical concepts in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, histology, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, pathology, and pharmacology. To help students develop skills essential for compassionate medical care, the biomedical sciences are complemented by medical humanities, assessing human development, psychology of being a physician, bioethics, and health care delivery. Material presented in Medical Skills and Osteopathic Principles and Practice augment this learning with physical diagnosis and osteopathic manipulative treatment skill development. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America.
