They will be ideal candidates for faculty at one of the osteopathic colleges or OPTI GME programs.
The program’s basic standards allow for a tailored rotation schedule based on the resident’s previous training. The resident will participate in the hospital OMM consult service and the outpatient OMM clinic 3 half days per week. The resident will be required to participate in departmental research projects.
