Do DOs get certified in Osteopathic manipulative medicine

Hey!

As a physician, you're licensed to practice medicine, first and foremost. If you do one of the handful of OMM/NMM residencies, you can take board certification exams for that specialty, like any other.

No, you don't get board certified unless you choose to do your residency in OMM/NMM which is pretty useless to be honest. You can still use the OMM techniques you learn from school as a primary care physician (Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN) without being board certified in it.

Can you bill for it though?

Any DO can practice OMM if they feel okay incorporating it.
I've seen people do a combined Family Med+NMM residency (3+1). But I think NMM residency is mainly required if you plan to teach OMM
