The CORE curriculum in OMM for 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 thereof. It is each resident’s individual responsibility to further their own education in osteopathic principles and apply them during their patient care experiences. As with any procedure, it is only through the clinical experience of its utilization in patient care that its clinical value becomes evident. So it is with OMM.
To that end, the CORE Osteopathic Principles and Practices Committee (COPPC) has generated teaching materials to further elucidate the principles of osteopathy as they apply to the clinical setting. These presentations are given on a regular basis at all CORE Hospitals and it is recommended that each resident familiarize themselves with the schedule at their individual hospitals. Also, these presentations are organized by specialty on the following page to allow each residency program director to choose an appropriate presentation to be given to the residents, reinforcing the principles of osteopathy in the clinical setting, specific to residency specialty.
