Still OPTI hosts intensive osteopathic skills course

July 23, 2019
Posted In: Events, KCOM, Missouri Campus, University Headlines

In conjunction with professors at A.T. Still’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM), Still OPTI hosted an osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) and osteopathic principles and practice (OPP) skills course May 20-23, 2019.

Event participants received hands-on instruction from ATSU-KCOM faculty related to OPP including soft tissue, counterstrain and muscle energy techniques, and segmental diagnosis for the thoracic and lumbar spine.

The 32-hour course was designed to teach allopathic students and residents entering the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) osteopathic-recognized programs the basic skills associated with OMM and OPP. The course also served as a resource for allopathic attendings who precept and supervise osteopathic residents in osteopathic-recognized programs. Several osteopathic students, residents, and faculty also attended the event as an OMM and OPP refresher course.

“This course and others like this serve MDs and DOs in training programs in building role models for instruction and the delivery of care that best helps patients return to a sense of health and well-being,” said Richard J. LaBaere II, DO, MPH, FAODME, associate dean, postgraduate training.

Dr. LaBaere is Still OPTI Academic Officer and Designated Institutional Official and was one of nine ATSU KCOM instructors who taught the course.

Still OPTI works to further competent, compassionate, and skilled healthcare by providing high-quality osteopathic graduate medical education to interns, residents, and fellows through collaboration with hospitals, colleges, and physicians.
