Thank you for your interest in our OMM/NMM program!  There are great advantages of Oklahoma State University’s OMM/NMM residency and we would love to showcase more about becoming a future OMM resident.

Our attending physicians and faculty members get to know you personally and are dedicated to your success. Oklahoma State University Medical Center is one of the largest osteopathic training facilities with an extensive and rich history training residents and fellows.  Our Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Clinic is dedicated to treating patients who suffer from acute or chronic pain and seek an alternative treatment to surgery.

Our diverse patient population encompasses many underserved and undiagnosed patients with extensive medical history. From day one, you will be assigned patients to assess and treat alongside current staff.  As you participate in rotations, you will recognize the advantages of working with physicians who regularly implement OMM into their daily practice.  You will be provided consistent feedback helping prepare you for your future care in clinical practice using enhanced OMM techniques in your clinical practice.

Please explore our website and contact us with any questions you may have. We also look forward to those who wish to rotate with us and encourage you to do so. You may just discover that OSU belongs at the top of your list!
