A.T. Still University’s (ATSU) National Center for Osteopathic Principles and Practice Education (NCOPPE) is hosting a four-day introduction to osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) for MDs and DOs in May.
“Introduction to OMM for MDs and DOs” will be May 23-26, 2022, at ATSU’s Kirksville, Missouri, campus. The cost to attend is $75 for NCOPPE members, $200 for medical students, and $475 for all others.
The course is designed for MD students and residents entering Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education osteopathic-recognized programs and for MD attendings who precept and supervise residents in osteopathic recognition programs. Additionally, the course serves as a refresher for DO students, residents, and teaching faculty who want to sharpen their skills and knowledge while learning about osteopathic principles and practice (OPP), soft tissue, counterstrain and muscle energy techniques, and segmental diagnosis for the thoracic and lumbar spine.
The course will be led by Eric Snider, DO, chair of the OMM department at ATSU’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine.
NCOPPE provides individualized education support, face-to-face training courses, and serves as an online repository of OPP-related materials available on-demand for educators across the undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education continuum. NCOPPE’s goal is to advance osteopathic education, promote integration of osteopathic principles in clinical practice, and encourage development of OPP educational materials in the profession.
