Document Type


Publication Date



This pre-conference workshop is designed to provide a foundation in osteopathic principles and practice and basic skills in osteopathic diagnosis and manipulative treatment for medical students, residents and family medicine faculty with little to no training in osteopathic medicine. It is also an excellent opportunity for doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) to refresh their skills.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand the four tenets of osteopathic medicine and their applicability to allopathic as well as osteopathic medicine.
  2. Demonstrate the basic osteopathic assessment and treatment of 3–4 common diagnoses that present in outpatient and inpatient family medicine settings.
  3. Produce an outline of a training curriculum in osteopathic assessment and treatment for non-DOs within his/her own program using the tools provided by the workshop.
