    The return of the Level 2-PE in a year?

    Anyone else read this special commission report? (see recommendation #1). Would all the COMs be ready to administer this within a year without any integrity issues? Recommendations from the Special Commission on Osteopathic Medical Licensure Assessment — NBOME

    Cash only OMT Clinic?

    Is having a cash only OMT clinic feasible? Do you think this would require a full FM/OMM residency and/or NMM/OMM fellowship? Or do you think you could do it after being licensed? (Licensed after 1-2 years of residency vs finishing board certification after 3-4 residency/fellowship). What other...

    Rights to diversity of gender expression in OMM lab

    I’m sitting in on an OMM class + lab section at a local osteopathic medical school. I’ve fallen in love with OMT and I think it's extremely useful and would pick up a lot of physiological causes of seemingly nonspecific complaints that MDs usually dismiss — especially in women or other patient...

    African American DO v MD

    So I'm in a position, where I will be choosing between MD or DO. I am interested in DO, cause I want to learn OMM. However, I'm African American. And in the back of my head I feel like there will always be someone thinking "OH, he is a black Osteopath. I guess he wasn't good enough to...

    How OMT-minded is your school?

    [This is my first post on SDN. Hi! I'm Josh!] I'm really wanting to go to a school that is heavily focused on osteopathic manipulation and philosophy. I did see another post about this from 2015 by Dohnut, but I'm looking for more specific data. If you're currently/previously a student at an...

    How to increase your COMLEX Level 1 score

    Deleted post. I was simply trying to share my testimony about what God did in my life & what I did to increase my comlex score by 230+ points. The posts below are extremely rude & disrespectful. I refuse to be part of such negativity - especially when I was trying to do good. GB.

    COMLEX 1 OMM bump?

    My school had us take COMSAE D to clear us to take COMLEX Level 1 a couple weeks ago. I got a 569, but my score report said I was borderline in OMM and pathology. I have been studying both. I am taking COMLEX 6/12 and I have been doing some COMBANK OMM and savarese each day along with my other...

    Shadowing OMT sessions with DO?

    Hey SDN, I've been fortunate to have been offered to shadow two OMT sessions performed by two different DOs at a health clinic I volunteer at. Of course I said yes, but I'm curious as to what to make of this.. Is this "good" shadowing experience" I'm applying almost unilaterally to DO schools.

    NMM/OMT Residency Information

    Hello all, I am thinking of applying to an NMM/OMT residency for 2017, but have some questions.... There are currently 8 NMM/OMT residencies, and as far as I can tell, they are all 2 years of NMM/OMT after a one year traditional internship. Are any of these programs combined, or do I have to...

    DO/MBA joint and FM/OMM vs NMM/OMM for residency

    Thoughts on OMM

    Hey everybody, I'm a MS1 at an osteopathic school with some thoughts on OMM that I wanted to share and get feedback on. I don't believe in it. I know that's not a super original opinion to have, but I'm wondering why nothing (at least nothing that I'm aware of) is ever really done to get rid of...
