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 Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine:

  • Integrated three year program in Osteopathic Family Practice/Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (FP/NMM)
  • Integrated three year program in Internal Medicine/Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (IM/NMM)
  • Two-year program in Neuromusculoskeletal medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (NMM/OMM)
  • One-year program in Neuromusculoskeletal medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine 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 give 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. Currently available OMM/NMM training opportunities.
