Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

  • OMM 399 - KCUMB Fellowship in OMM (E)

    The Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine fellowship gives interested students the opportunity to practice and perfect their skills while working with experienced osteopathic physicians.

    The OMM Fellowship is a twelve-month training program that takes place ideally between the student's third and fourth year clinical clerkship assignments. A fifth year is added to the student's period of undergraduate training to accommodate his/her clinical clerkship and OMM Fellowship obligations. The student must stay in good academic standing in order to participate in the fellowship program. Once the fellowship year is completed, the students start/continue their clerkships.

    Fellow responsibilities include:

    • Participating in departmental teaching duties such as laboratory sessions, reviews, practical exams, and the didactic program.
    • Seeing patients in the student/OMM clinic under the direct supervision of an attending physician and getting additional specific training in advanced and varied osteopathic manipulative skills monthly with outside practitioners.
    • Conducting research and/or scholarly activity relating to osteopathic principles and/or Osteopathic Medical practice.

    Fellows receive a monetary stipend and tuition for their fellowship year and one additional year.

    Fellows will also have opportunities for additional learning experiences such as traveling to the AAO Annual Convocation conference, attending OMM CME taught by University Faculty, and participating in Sports Medicine coverage of sporting events under the supervision of Faculty.

    Graded S/U. 10-20 semester credits
