Cornell has seen a 153 percent increase in the number of matriculants to osteopathic medical schools between 2008 and 2013, according to Rebecca Sparrow, executive director of Cornell Career Services.

This figure supports national trends — which recently came to light after the publication of a The New York Times piece — with the number of students enrolling in osteopathic medical schools increasing and approximately a quarter of all medical school graduates coming from such schools.
