    I am most likely going to do a Family Medicine residency in an ACGME program. I would like to provide OMM for patients in my future practice that it would benefit, but do I need to do an AOA residency to legally bill for this? or is graduating from an osteopathic medical school enough? If not, are there courses, certifications or requirements post residency to do so? I have considered several AOA FM residencies in the area but the one that appeals to me the most is unfortunately ACGME.

    Sorry if this was discussed elsewhere on the forums, i didnt find anything in the search.

    Thanks in advance for replies! :D

    Yes, you can practice OMM if you do an ACGME residency. No further training is necessary.
