This additional year of training, following completion of a primary residency training program, is aimed at assisting the residents to hone and perfect their osteopathic manipulative skills to better serve their patients both in their primary care practice as well as act in a consultative role in ambulatory and hospital settings.

ONMM3 residents will have extensive clinic time to learn to incorporate OMM into primary care visits as well as spend clinic time in our OMM consultation clinic. They will also spend several months rotating in our vibrant OMM hospital consultation service with regular consultations from Surgery, Pediatrics, OB and Medical Specialties. Specific rotations during the residency year will include Neurology, Rheumatology, Pain Management, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation with electives in Integrative Medicine, Pediatrics, Occupational Medicine and Orthopedics.

Book clubs and didactic sessions in osteopathic philosophy, anatomy and embryology will occur ongoing throughout the year. We have a weekly Osteopathic Didactic session in conjunction with the other many Osteopathic students, interns and residents. ONMM3 Residents will prepare and present lecture/lab sessions for our other osteopathic trainee’s to better prepare them as future teachers in the osteopathic profession. We also have a monthly Osteopathic Grand rounds with AT Still and anatomy reading and discussion as well as lecture and lab sessions with our guest speaker Andrew Goldman, DO.

We have developed a part-time track where individuals work half time as a resident and half time as an attending over a two year period. This track is attractive for individuals who may need to maintain a higher income due to family or other obligations and for those who desire an ease into independent practice. All residency requirements are completed in the two year time frame and salary reflects a mix of resident and attending compensation. Please contact Dr. Kisiel for details.

We do not use ERAS for the Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Manipulative Medicine Program.
