Get hands-on experience in osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) and osteopathic principles and practice (OPP) skills, taught by expert OMM faculty from the founding college of osteopathic medicine, A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of  Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM). 

The four-day, 32-hour “Introduction to OMM for MDs and DOs” is designed for MD students/residents entering Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education osteopathic-recognized programs and for MD attendings who precept and supervise  residents in osteopathic recognition programs. 

The course also serves as a refresher for DO students, DO residents, and DO teaching faculty who want to sharpen their skills and knowledge while learning about OPP, soft tissue, counterstrain and muscle energy techniques, and segmental diagnosis for the thoracic and lumbar spine. 

The National Center for Osteopathic Principles and Practice Education (NCOPPE) provides individualized education support and serves as an online repository of OPP-related materials  available on-demand for educators across the undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education continuum.
