he students of Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine (RowanSOM), in collaboration with the RowanSOM Department of Family Medicine, have created the first online course on osteopathic medicine.

This innovative method of learning about osteopathic medicine is designed to inform future osteopathic medical students, potential patients, and non-osteopathic medical professionals of the methods and practices in the field.

The online course provides the opportunity for students to:

  • be introduced to osteopathic medicine from multiple points of view—from the perspective of a new medical student to that of a seasoned medical professional in the field
  • explore the history of osteopathic medicine from its inception to modern day influence
  • learn about osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) and its application in a clinical setting

The course is self-paced and takes an average of four hours per week for up to four weeks (16 hours total) to complete.
