Our Osteopathic Curriculum
As the only dually accredited (DO and MD) residency in Massachusetts, we offer monthly hands-on osteopathic didactics and regular clinic sessions for osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) with DO preceptors to hone our skills and learn new techniques. Osteopathic Manipulation is used daily in the clinic. Residents are trained to actively apply osteopathic principles to patient care and appropriately utilize OMT.
Our goal is to help residents develop their osteopathic skills and be comfortable and proficient addressing all areas of family medicine. Interested MD residents are encouraged to learn and practice OMT longitudinally during their residency. There are many occasions to attend osteopathic courses for further development. In our program, we have a wonderful collaboration between our allopathic and osteopathic physicians.
In addition to our comprehensive primary care services, patients have access to on-site behavioral health, dental and lab services. Patients can also access urgent care services across the street, along with ambulatory physical therapy and radiology.
