  • Osteopathic Recognition – OMM Requirements
  • Supervising Procedures – CMS Requirements
  • Teaching OMM –Outpatient and Inpatient
  • Documenting and Coding for OMM
  • Assessing OMM and OPP Competencies

*Program subject to change.

Educational Objectives

  • Review the OPP competencies and milestones indicating progression towards competency mastery
  • Analyze and identify different methods for integrating OPP in scholarly activity and patient care activities
  • Demonstrate types of OMT to use and teach to resident physicians in the hospital and outpatient settings and how to document and bill for OMM
  • Describe the ACGME and CMS residency supervision requirements and describe how they relate toward reimbursement
  • Identify different assessment methods for evaluating OPP competencies

Target Audience
Attending physicians who currently or plan to supervise students and resident physicians performing OMM in clinical settings (DOs and MDs)
Resident physicians who supervise student physicians performing OMM in clinical settings (DO and MD)

Professional Practice Gap
The National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME), the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), and the World Health Organization (WHO) have all identified the need to train and assess osteopathic physicians-in-training in osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM). With the current transition of osteopathic residency programs to accreditation by the American Council on Gradual Medical Education (ACGME), ACGME has recently developed a special a special certification for ACGME accredited residencies known as Osteopathic Recognition (OR). This CME program will detail the OR requirements for OMM training, OMM documentation and supervision requirements as defined the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), and methodologies for teaching and assessing OMM.

Educational Need

ACGME osteopathically recognized residency programs along with Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine require an adequate number of preceptors to supervise and train resident and students in the performance of osteopathic manipulative medicine. This CME program will prepare attending and resident physicians to supervise OMM in clinical setting by teaching participants OMM techniques for outpatient and inpatient conditions and providing educational methodologies for teaching and assessing OMM within modern systems-based practices.

This CME program is suitable for ACGME OR resident training in hands-on OMM technique performance (OR Requirements document III.B.3) and training residents to teach students (OR Requirements document III.B.11). this program aids residents in obtaining basic knowledge of and training toward mentoring others to perform OMM in clinical settings OMM (OR Milestones – Patient Care 1: Osteopathic Principles for Patient Care; Patient Care 2: Examination, Diagnosis, and Treatment; and Osteopathic Principles for Medical Knowledge )

This CME program is also suitable for ACGME OR faculty development in OPP Competencies (OR Requirements document III.C.1.c).(1) and III.C.1.c).(2)) to help ensure an adequate number of faculty to train residents in OMM (OR Requirements document III.B.6.).

Desired Outcomes

  • Knowledge – Student and resident preceptors who supervise OMM in clinical settings need to understand the ACGME OR requirements for OMM training, OMM documentation and supervision requirements, and methodologies for teaching and assessing OMM.
  • Competence – Student and resident preceptors who supervise OMM in clinical settings will be qualified to teach OMM techniques suitable for outpatient and inpatient clinical settings.
  • Performance – Student and resident preceptors who supervise OMM in clinical settings will demonstrate performance in teaching OMM techniques suitable for outpatient and inpatient clinical settings.
