"Evidence-based medicine is a natural evolution in medicine that fits very
well into the osteopathic philosophy. Historically, physicians practiced
medicine without any significant research literature basis. The next step,
then, was to develop a literature base that supported what physicians did.
Evidence-based medicine is a third step, which is to take the literature base,
combine it with what you know about the patient, their values, the patient's
personality, their physical examination, and their history, and develop a
treatment plan that has a strong basis in the medical literature. This is
a priority for our College. I would like to see almost all therapy that we
teach in the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine based on the research literature
and integrated with the patient's unique clinical situation."
