Residency Training

NMM/OMM Residency Training

The American Osteopathic Association's Council on Postdoctoral Training currently authorizes residency training in the recognized specialty of neuromusculoskeletal medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine (NMM/OMM).

Specialty training programs consist of three types, all of which qualify the successful resident to sit for specialty board examination in NMM/OMM:

  • Two-year program in NMM/OMM
  • One-year program in NMM/OMM  following completion of an AOA-approved residency in another discipline (PLUS-ONE)

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. 

For a current list of OMM/NMM training opportunities, contact Amber Rausch, the AAO's postdoctoral education liaison and CME coordinator, by email or at (317) 879-1881, ext. 216.
