Kirksville, Missouri’s A.T. Still University birthed Osteopathic medicine back in 1892
Come along and join Haxton to learn the rest of the story of how Dr. Still transformed modern medicine through his philosophy of osteopathy centered on treating the whole person—body, mind and spirit.
When The American School of Osteopathy was founded by Dr. Still in 1892, the first class consisted of five women and 16 men.
Today, in addition to the medical school in Kirksville, A.T. Still University operates a second medical school in Mesa, Arizona and a physicians assistant program in Santa Maria, California.
