    Depending on what you want your practice to be like, there are advantages to having OMT courses of differing lengths. So I've started this thread to list DO schools that have short OMT courses. The advantage to the short course, of course, is that if you want to be an interventional cardiologist, a neurosurgeon, or a dermatologist that you aren't trying to re-memorize the setup for hip and long restrictors when you're gearing up for boards.

    So which schools offer a short OMT course (1 semester or 1 year)?

    Oklahoma State has OMT all 4 semesters + a 1-month rotation in the 3rd year. :confused:

    I am pretty sure each osteopathic medical school has to teach similar topics and hours of OMM to be accredited by the AOA and to prepare its students for COMLEX. The difference may be in extra-curricular OMM opportunities from school to school. The minimum mandatory OMM taught isn't really enough for treating patients without ongoing and extra-curricular practice in my opinion, which is just fine by some people. The basics are enough to give you a boost in understanding of body dynamics and the inter-dependence of the body systems.

    I believe the minimum is a total of 200 hours of training in OMM (which I would imagine would be 4 semesters at all schools)
