Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

Welcome to the OMM Academic Department 

      OMM Lab Faculty

Who We Are: 

The PCOM Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) faculty share many years of working together to teach both future and practicing osteopathic physicians. 

Our physician staff consists of eleven attending physicians (two are missing in the above picture). Our OMM clinical teaching faculty also includes a resident physician and nine student OMM Clinical Scholars (formerly known as OMM Fellows) who all assist in teaching all the courses of OMM. 

The PCOM OMM faculty carry on the one of the longest-lived traditions of continuous OMM diagnosis, treatment, and curriculum development within the osteopathic profession, since the founding of our institution in 1898.
