Osteopathic Training Commitment
At Crozer Health Family Medicine Residency Program, we promote a collaborative environment for residents from both allopathic and osteopathic backgrounds. We have been dual-accredited since 2000 and are committed to the growth of osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) within our program and the community.
Currently, an OMM clinic takes place every two weeks, broken down into an interactive daytime teaching clinic and an autonomous resident-run evening clinic. This allots dedicated time for D.O. residents to practice and foster their manual skills.
In addition, we partner with the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine to create a longitudinal osteopathic learning curriculum, where residents can attend monthly seminars. We have chosen not to pursue osteopathic recognition because it would decrease the flexibility of our residency curriculum, but we remain in strong support of osteopathic principles and practice.
