Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine + 1 Residency

Our program was established to enable physicians who have already completed a residency in an approved specialty to spend an extra year enhancing their skills in neuromusculoskeletal medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine (NMM/OMM). Our goal is to develop highly trained physicians who can act as both clinicians and academicians. Our program will place a significant emphasis on the integration of osteopathic manipulative medicine and the principles of primary care sports medicine. Our residents will develop their Osteopathic clinical skills by providing inpatient care at Sky Ridge Medical Center and outpatient care at the Rocky Vista Health Center and other associated outpatient clinics. Our program also includes such rotation choices as neurological surgery, occupational medicine, orthopedic spine surgery, podiatric medicine, primary care sports medicine, neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, rheumatology, diagnostic/musculoskeletal radiology, medical acupuncture, family medicine, integrative medicine, functional medicine, hospice and palliative care, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, addiction medicine/pain management and pediatrics. Academic development will occur through the Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Parker, Colorado. Successful program completion will allow the physician to apply for the Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine certification examination.
