Dr. Holladay chose to study osteopathic medicine after her family physician, Dr. Didocha, D.O.. mentored her about this branch of medicine. The emphasis on preventive medicine is appealing and integrated best into her thinking. It was especially helpful that osteopathic medical students begin hands-on treatment/ training the first day of medical school. Michigan State University has an osteopathic medical school and coordinates many residencies, including the obstetrics and gynecology residency she graduated from in 1995. Dr. Holladay has been board certified since 1998 and additional training in menopause medicine was completed in 2008. 
You are more than just the sum of your body parts. That's why doctors of osteopathic medicine (D.O.s) practice a "whole person" approach to health care. Instead of just treating specific symptoms, osteopathic physicians concentrate on treating you as a whole. 
Osteopathic physicians understand how all the body's systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. They focus special attention on the musculoskeletal system, which reflects and influences the condition of all other body systems.
