Osteopathic Philosophies in Patient Care

Our Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (ONMM) Residency places emphasis on incorporating osteopathic philosophies into primary residency skills treating patients in pediatric, OB/GYN and hospital settings.

Accessible to AOA-accredited residency graduates and ACGME residencies with osteopathic recognition and focus, this is a one-year program that leads to board eligibility in ONMM.

Residents are expected to spend half day a week assisting in the OMM lab at Western-COMP and four half day continuity clinics which include free pediatric, OB/GYN, sports medicine and adult clinics.

There are two ONMM elective rotations. Hospital service is incorporated into a longitudinal rotation. Two months of specialty rotations are expected in various disciplines which include, but are not limited to, rheumatology, sports medicine, neurology and neurosurgery. There are four weekly didactic sessions, which include table training in osteopathic skills from ONMM board certified faculty. Additionally, there is a required research component, which includes participation in program as well as individual research.

This one-year, post-residency program is available to all types of disciplines including, but not limited to family practice, internal medicine and surgical residencies, based at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, Oregon.
