OMM Department Welcomes New Residents


July 13, 2016

Welcome to our new OMM Residents – Meghna M.Shah, DO and Andrew Levin, DO! The PCOM OMM Department is happy to welcome two new residents to our Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Residency Program. Both doctors have completed residencies in other specialties and are pursuing further education in osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) to add to their strong foundations of medicine. They will both be teaching students and seeing patients in our Department for the next year.

Dr. Meghna Shah earned her DO degree from Nova Southeastern University in Florida. While a student at Nova she spent an extra year in training as part of her Pre-Doctoral Fellowship in Osteopathic Principles and Practice, which involved teaching fellow students as well as seeing patients in the Nova OMM Department. Dr. Shah went on to complete her residency training in Pediatrics at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, where she incorporated an OMM curriculum into her Pediatric Residency program. The past year she worked as a Pediatric Hospitalist at St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, New York.

Dr. Andrew Levin earned his DO degree from the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York City. After completing his internship in New York, Dr. Levin came to Philadelphia, where he completed his training at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. While at Jefferson, he started the TJUH PM&R Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Group, incorporating OMM into his residency training.

The PCOM OMM Department is very pleased to welcome two such accomplished, residency-trained, physicians to our Department for further training in the specialty of osteopathic manipulative medicine. They will be with us the next year. Our faculty looks forward to learning from them while helping to teach them more about OMM.

Welcome Dr. Shah and Dr. Levin!
