The Korr Symposium: The Man, the Scientist, the Philosopher
May 15, 2021 - May 16, 2021
Irvin M. Korr, PhD, began his career in osteopathy as a physiologist who deeply questioned osteopathic medicine. Throughout his subsequent decades teaching in osteopathic medical schools, he became one of the most impactful and clarifying voices in the profession through his discussion of osteopathy’s impact on physiology, the philosophy of medicine, and medical education. This virtual symposium is a review of Korr’s decades-long effect on the understanding and expression of osteopathic medicine and a discussion of possible new directions by leading physicians and scientists in their respective fields.
