OMM Plus 1
An “OMM-Plus-1” variant of the program accepts as a
second year Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine resident,
those osteopathic physicians who have completed an AOA-approved residency in any field.
It is expected that applicants for this program variant are seeking dual certification (in both their primary specialty and OMM) combined with the ability to apply distinctive, time-efficient and cost-effective OPP/OMT to their unique specialty patient population. The “Plus-1” variant places the OMM education in a one-year package after the completion of another residency thus differing from the “OMM-Integrated” Programs which add one year to another residency but are integrated throughout.
