The goal of DidacticsOnline.com is to provide reviews and comments on various topics in medical discussion. Didactic discussions are an important aspect of medical education. We also hope to add what we refer to as an “Osteopathic voice” whenever possible. We will include information on Osteopathic practices and principles; including approach to patient, use of Osteopathic manipulative therapy and various aspects of the Osteopathic profession. Didacticsonline does not aim to replace other more comprehensive resources. We hope to be a supplement resource and a catalyst for further discussion.

It's great to see OMS's discussing OMT as it applies to all kinds of medicine! Thanks!
As a med student I am always looking for new tools to help with studying. This has been the best I have heard on iTunes. The information is to the point and it is very easy to follow. I have learned a lot from Didactics Online.
This is a nice review for some common medical issues. As an OMS III on rotations it will be useful to have a trusted source for OMT review, as it is difficult on some rotations to keep up with using it. Thanks NSU Fellows!
