One of the nation's leading figures in osteopathic medicine emphasized the exciting changes now transforming the profession, but also the need for continuity, when he spoke to the 2014 graduating class of Ohio University's Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.

 

Calling it "a wicked great day to be a D.O. in Ohio,"

Robert S. Juhasz, D.O., told the 112 new osteopathic physicians taking their degrees last week that while they should embrace the developments underway in osteopathic medicine, they should continue to cherish the patient-centered, hands-on approach that makes D.O.s unique.

This transformation, he noted, includes the pending arrival of the first entering classes at two new Heritage College campuses, in Dublin this July and in Cleveland in July 2015.
