Discussion of indications and contraindications for the most common techniques and the knowledge necessary to supervise osteopathic medical students in OMM are provided in these videos.
Osteopathic medical students, interns and residents may train in settings where DO attending physicians are not always available, or qualified preceptors to oversee the performance of osteopathic manual medicine may be limited. The ATSU-SOMA has developed a program to have MDs oversee the performance of OMM by osteopathic students, by developing a list of the ten most used techniques in osteopathic manual medicine, and then training allopathic physicians to supervise (not perform) these procedures.
