Students will work with osteopathic faculty in both the inpatient and outpatient setting with a focus on osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) techniques and the integration of manipulation into the typical primary care encounter. Our faculty teachers are experienced in the range of osteopathic techniques and treat patients in varied settings. Details of this rotation are arranged directly with the Director of Osteopathic Education in order to meet your specific educational goals.
Recent student OMM electives have involved direct work with our osteopathic faculty in both a consultative and primary care role. Students also have taken the opportunity to experience the range of providers offering OMM in the community, working with osteopaths in an exclusively consultative practice as well as with primary care physicians in surrounding communities who have advanced osteopathic skills and an interest in teaching.
Maine Dartmouth Collaborative Care Center is the primary clinical setting for this rotation.
