OMEDG 1636: Osteopathic Principles and Practice VI

This course is structured with weekly lectures and laboratory sessions that reinforce material presented in lectures. Material presented expands upon the osteopathic principles taught in previous osteopathic & physical exam courses, while also introducing new concepts, including exercise prescriptions, and the use of OMT in pediatric and obstetric patients. Students perform osteopathic structural examinations, diagnoses, and manipulative treatment. Where possible, the sequence of material is coordinated with concepts presented in other second year courses and presented in a case-based format. Practice board-style OMM question banks are assigned to help prepare students for standardized testing. Students are evaluated by practical examinations on core osteopathic treatment techniques, as well as midterm and final written examinations, with the final written examination being a COMAT OMM examination.
