Understanding the Five Model Approach
By Grant D. on 30. November 2019 for Five Models of Osteopathic Medicine

One of the most useful lectures in this series! I have always had trouble understanding how to use the 5 models, but in this video, Dr. Cymet did a fantastic job at breaking down the purpose of the 5 model approach, the meaning behind each model, and gave great examples for how and when each model should be used.
