The goal of the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) Scholars Program is to develop students as future teachers and highly skilled clinicians of osteopathic medicine. In completing this program, participating students will integrate osteopathic principles and practice into all aspects of osteopathic medicine, as well as gain experience and skill in teaching these to others.
After an application period and interview, selected PCOM osteopathic medicine students will enter the program after their second year of study. The program extends the clinical clerkship curriculum to three years rather than two. At least 12 months of clinical training is provided in the Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.
OMM Scholars have special academic, clinical and research responsibilities beyond those of other students. Program benefits include remission of tuition, a monthly stipend and travel allowance.
