LUCOM Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (ONMM) Residency Program

Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (ONMM) Residency

The Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (ONMM) Program sponsored by Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine Graduate Medical Education Services (LUCOM GMES) equips physicians to become leaders in clinical practice in the specialty, medical education, and scholarship and is thereby building a value-chain pipeline of highly skilled physicians for the region of Central Virginia. Program leadership works closely with the Sponsoring Institution of LUCOM GMES in building and developing the ONMM program to prepare physicians for their careers in academic medicine or community-based ONMM specialty practice in the region.

The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for a three-year residency in ONMM.

Collaborative Health Specialty Services

The Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (ONMM) Residency Program is housed within the Collaborative Health Specialty Services (CHSS) office. The practice includes not only ONMM but also Sports Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Psychiatry & Adult Behavioral Health, and Endocrinology. This variety of specialties offers a unique opportunity for continuity of care and holistic team-enhanced approaches to caring for our patients. The clinic provides many resources to improve convenience, including in-house x-ray, laboratory collection services, and point-of-care ultrasounds. We also plan to have electromyography (EMG) available soon.

The ONMM patient panel ranges in age from newborn to nonagenarians, crosses many socioeconomic groups, and spans a two-hour radius from our clinic. The expansive pathology seen in the office provides our residents with a robust foundation of medical knowledge and an appreciation for the varied applications of OMT. We are connected with an extensive system of local primary care physicians and continue to build connections with other local specialty providers. The clinic’s ONMM rooms are outfitted with electronic perimeter pedal tables, cushions and bolster to improve patient comfort and treatment posture, anatomy posters and models, percussion hammers, and sound machines.

CHSS benefits from exceptional clinical and support staff who provide outstanding patient care and service and contribute meaningfully to resident education and support. This positive atmosphere enhances day-to-day communication, decreases feelings of burnout, and always makes employees feel special by celebrating birthdays, holidays, and other important life events.
