AdventHealth East - ONMM3 Residency

AdventHealth East - ONMM3 Residency

About the Program

The ONMM3 Program at AdventHealth East Orlando has recently gained initial accreditation through the American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and will be recruiting up to TWO residents annually with training starting in 2021-22.
It is a one-year residency program dedicated to training the resident OMM. ONMM3 residents will be trained by THREE board-certified Neuro-muscular medicine (NMM/OMM) core faculty members. Training is focused on reviewing making accurate osteopathic diagnoses (somatic dysfunctions) as well as performing various modalities of treatment including, but not limited to, High Velocity Low Amplitude (HVLA), Muscle Energy (MET), Counterstrain (CS), Soft Tissue and Myofascial Release along with Cranial and Visceral techniques. Additionally, the resident will be trained to utilize other procedures related to treating patients with neuro-musculo-skeletal ailments including Trigger point injections, Prolotherapy, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections while utilizing Ultrasound guidance.

Residents are trained and treat patients in both the outpatient (Center for Family Care) and the inpatient setting (AdventHealth East Orlando hospital), which are within walking distance of each other. ONMM3 Residents will work along and help train Family Medicine residents as well as medical students from a variety of osteopathic medical schools. There are weekly half-day academic didactic sessions dedicated to OMM as well as Family Medicine. There is also a special emphasis placed on non-surgical orthopedics, sports medicine training with opportunities to help cover professional ice hockey and basketball games. Also, the resident will be exposed to and participate in the care of patients in our PPP (Pediatric, Pregnancy, Post-partum) clinic.
