Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine

The Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine two-year program is for a D.O. who has completed a one-year rotating internship or its equivalent. This residency is particularly valuable if you want to specialize in neuromusculoskeletal medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine, increase your skills in manipulative medicine, plan to become a clinical researcher in the field or are planning an academic career at an osteopathic medical school.

Based at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, the NMM residency provides advanced educational and clinical facilities. Residents have full use of all library facilities including online access to the reserve collection of electronic journals. Access will also be available to residents while at community clinic sites. Clinical experiences obtained at both private community and academic health center facilities enable residents to treat a diverse population of patients. Residents have ready access to consultants from all clinical specialties where needed.
