This workshop will focus on the diagnosis of somatic dysfunction and osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) in the hospital bed.

Educational Need
Osteopathically focused residency programs require both the faculty and residents to received ongoing training on the integration of the uniquely osteopathic knowledge, skills, and behaviors of osteopathic principles and practice.
