    I believe those are like a fellowship in omm/omt post graduation before your residency. Mostly for the diehard manipulation guru's

    Thats exactly right....they are in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. A +1 year is an additional year (sort of like a fellowship) that you can do after several residencies (though I would imagine its mostly after primary care)

    Apparently, you can do it BEFORE residency ... ask JP ... speaking of which, he's been awfully quiet following his last debacle ... :laugh:

    is the +1 the internship year to fulfill requirements for some states?

    Actually, JPHazelton is doing a pre-doctoral fellowship (PDF), not a +1 program.

    PDFs help teach OMM to 1st and 2nd year medical students and is completed during your 3rd and 4th years of medical school. (see http://www.hsc.unt.edu/departments/omm/fellows.htm). One can also complete a masters degree in education during this time if one so chooses (at least at TCOM you can.. don't know about the other schools)

    a +1 program is done after residency - usually after family medicine, but it can be after other programs. (see http://www.hsc.unt.edu/departments/omm/residency.htm)

    just a note of clarification...

    no, the internship is an internship, the +1 program is to qualify for board certification in neuromuscular medicine/osteopathic manipulative medicine (NMM/OMM).

    See the links in my post above for more information.
