OMM Review Course
This activity will introduce physicians in the community that take DMU students to some of the osteopathic manual medicine (OMM) diagnostic procedures and treatment procedures that are taught at the University. The preceptors will be presented with an explanation of the safety of the osteopathic manual medicine procedures. Our hope is that they will become comfortable with allowing students to practice those techniques during patient care so that they can maintain their skill. DMU is committed to providing a way for interested physicians to review osteopathic manual medicine procedures with the ability to practice them in a safe laboratory environment.
By relying on the combination of didactic learning, case presentations, and hands-on skills-based workshops, the educational experience of the learner is enhanced. The concepts taught in the didactic lectures are then demonstrated in the laboratory session. If the learners have difficulty in performing the treatments in the laboratory session, OMM experts are on-site to offer guidance and address concerns.
The following learner attributes will be addressed: Osteopathic philosophy and osteopathic manipulative medicine, medical knowledge, patient-centered care, professionalism, practice-based learning and improvement, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and interpersonal and communication skills.
D.O. and M.D. preceptors who teach DMU students. Although we are encouraged by the interest in OMM shown by the residents, please be advised that this course is ONLY open to preceptors taking DMU students, not residents. Resident members of DMU OPTI will be instructed in OMM separate and aside from the course. Surgery and internal medicine residents will receive didactic training sessions in house.
