Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

CORE Osteopathic Principles and Practices Committee

The Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) curriculum in Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education (CORE) residency programs focuses on the availability of educational materials and appropriate assessment tools to document a resident's progress in his/her development of OMM skills and rational application of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). It is the resident's individual responsibility to further her or his own education in osteopathic principles and apply them during patient care experiences. As with any procedure, it is only through clinical experiences that its value becomes evident. So it is with OMM.

To that end, the CORE Osteopathic Principles and Practices Committee (COPPC) has generated teaching materials with clinical case studies and morning reports to further elucidate the principles of osteopathic medicine as they apply to the clinical setting. These presentations are given on a regular basis at all CORE hospitals and it is recommended that residents familiarize themselves with the schedules at their individual hospitals.
