Shadowing Osteopathic Physicians

Currently shadowing physicians in British Columbia is not allowed due to the regulations inside of British Columbia. We understand that many osteopathic medical schools require a letter of recommendation from an osteopathic physician in order to gain entry to osteopathic medical schools. 

If interested in shadowing opportunities, contact the Canadian Osteopathic Medical Student Association (, or by traveling to Washington State (Click here), or Find a DO through the AOA. (Click here)
