Event Description

Course Description
This course will: 

  • provide basic and refresher knowledge and skills for program directors and core teaching faculty who supervise osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) in clinics.
  • help MD students and graduates obtain the prerequisites for entering osteopathic-recognized residencies. 
  • be valuable for clinicians interested in adding OMT to their skill set.

Through a combination of lectures and hands-on workshops, attendees will learn the basics of osteopathic manipulative medicine, which encompasses osteopathic tenets, palpatory diagnosis and OMT.

The curriculum includes lessons on muscle energy technique; thoracic spine technique; articulatory techniques; functional techniques; myofascial release; and high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust.

Course registration includes one copy of Greenman’s Principles of Manual Medicine, 5th edition.

"The teaching of the course itself was guided very wisely, carefully, with good examples. It helped me personally to draw a whole picture about integration of OMM in clinical practice."  – Sofio (MD)
