The PLUS–ONE residency program is provided to any specialty which does not currently have a combined NMM residency program. The PLUS-ONE residency gives physicians the opportunity to add an additional year of NMM skills to their specialty. The requirements and curriculum for the NMM PLUS-ONE residency program are the same as in the established and approved FP/NMM and IM/NMM combined programs.

The Postgraduate American Academy of Osteopathy (PAAO) needs your help! At the AAO's annual Convocation, the PAAO hosts a mixer for residents.

The raffle that is held during the mixer encourages attendance, helps break the ice and generally keeps things hopping.
