Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) is incorporated into the training of all osteopathic physicians. With OMM, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) use their hands to diagnose injury, illness, and to encourage the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
At the heart of the Center for Medical and Health Sciences, the OMM lab will encompass nearly 5,000-square-feet and will be located on the third floor. The lab will comfortably accommodate over 80 students per lab session. Natural light from exterior windows will provide students a comfortable learning environment for the “hands-on” OMM curriculum.
Adjustable tables will accommodate individual student needs and high definition video screens will also be provided throughout the lab allowing students to view anatomic motions and manipulation demonstrations. The instructional teaching station has both fixed and portable high definition cameras to allow optimal viewing of techniques and quality recording for future review. This lab will allow for live broadcast feeds to other educational spaces within the facility, as well. The lab is designed to hold more than 40 OMM tables with an anticipated faculty to student ratio of approximately 1 to 10.
