Osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) and osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) were not intended to be relegated only to a specialty niche, but practiced by all physicians who are willing to learn and apply these principles. Every physician can easily incorporate the philosophy and principles of osteopathic medicine into patient care.

This convocation will showcase physicians from various medical specialties and demonstrate their approach to utilizing osteopathic manipulative medicine and treatment in patient care. 

Dermatology, neurology, cardiology, psychiatry, radiology, sports medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics/gynecology are just a few of the specialties that will be represented in this year’s presentations and workshops. 

Each physician will discuss how they incorporate the philosophy of OMM into their practice. Workshops will be focused on OMT techniques they incorporate into their busy practices.
