NCOPPE to host four-day introduction course to OMM in May on ATSU’s Kirksville campus

A.T. Still University’s National Center for Osteopathic Principles and Practice Education (NCOPPE) will be hosting a four-day introduction to osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) for MDs and DOs on the University’s Kirksville, Missouri, campus from May 20-23.

Taught by expert OMM faculty from the founding college of osteopathic medicine, ATSU-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM), the 32-hour “Introduction to OMM for MDs and DOs” course is geared toward all levels of learners, especially faculty and residents participating in Osteopathic Recognition residency programs. It is designed as both an introductory course and a refresher for those 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 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. 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. 

“Introduction to OMM for MDs and DOs” will take place in the Blumenthal Osteopathic Skills Lab in the Connell Information Technologies Center at ATSU’s Kirksville, Missouri, campus. The cost is $200 for NCOPPE/Still OPTI members and medical students and $550 for all others.
