Additionally, if you have interest in OMM, I would recommend an AOA approved internship with active OMM practitioners.
Taus-This is all VERY interesting to me. I am not doing the internship and am worried about my skills deteriorating during residency. I have a solid OMM rotation set up during third year and am planning on doing another one sometime after the match 4th year. That being said...I have a couple of Q's: (keep in mind that I'm an M2 so these q's may be relatively naive/dumb...)
1. Is it possible to take short outside courses in this during residency (ie like a resident getting time off to go to a conference?)
2. Would a PM&R residency allow you to use one of your elective months on OMM at an outside institution? (Being that it doesn't necessarily fall under a PM&R sub-discipline)
3. Does anyone have any input about the Philly and Jersey programs willingness and comfort level w/ Residents using OMM during clinic?
Thanks a lot for any input.
