Introduction to Allopathy: The unique philosophy of non-alternative medicine
Allopathic medicine is taught by the medical schools that award M.D. degrees. At its base, is the philosophy that medical therapy should be based on science. In this moderated discussion, we'll explore both the strengths and quirks of conventional medicine based on its foundation in the scientific method including peer review, controlled experimentation, and underpinnings in human biology. We'll also discuss how allopathic philosophy creates an antipathy toward euthanasia, prescribing placebo, integrating alternative therapies, etc. Finally, we'll consider the development of the standardized undergraduate, pre-medical core curriculum and extra-curriculars as prerequisites for studying medicine in an allopathic school. Featuring Louis Kuchnir, MD, PhD and MIT '87 alum.
