Officials at Indiana University of Pennsylvania are considering opening the state’s first school of osteopathic medicine. It would be the first time such courses would be offered at a public university in Pennsylvania. A resolution to let the school explore doing so was approved unanimously by I-U-P’s trustees Thursday evening. School officials say they hope offering such curriculum would help improve rural health opportunities and advance Pennsylvania’s economy. The main difference in osteopathy doctors is that they complete additional training in alternative medicine for physical manipulation of the body’s muscle tissue and bones.
