ACOFP’s OMT Education/Video Resources

For residencies with ACGME Osteopathic Recognition status, the OMT Education/Video Resources provide a complete OMM/OPP curriculum, with 41 chapters in the textbook spread across a three-year curriculum of monthly OMM lectures and OMT skills labs.

This online program is intended to compliment the ACOFP’s textbook “Somatic Dysfunction in Osteopathic Family Medicine - 2nd Edition” published by Wolters Kluwer Health®.

For each of the chapters in the textbook, the ACOFP’s OMM core competency program contains:
  • A PowerPoint presentation that follows the chapter content and illustrates the didactic section lecture.
  • A didactic assessment (quiz) for each lecture, with referenced answer key that identifies where in the PowerPoint
    presentation the correct answers may be found.
  • A psychomotor skills (OMM) assessment form, to be used in conjunction with the OMT videos and skills laboratory that
    can be found in the 2nd half of the most chapters.
There is also a viscerosomatic reflex pdf that you can print out, reproduce, and give to your faculty, residents and students. It consists of 2 pages. Xerox them 1 sided-2 sided, laminate them, if desired, and cut the sheet into quarters, yielding 4 pocket reference charts, each containing viscerosomatic reflexes on one side and a description of the neurophysiology of the reflexes on the other side.

Included are a series of comprehensive didactic lectures that correlate to 41 chapters in the ACOFP textbook publication Somatic Dysfunction in Osteopathic Family Medicine

To further enhance learning, ACOFP has developed an OMT Video Library to correlate with the content of the textbook. Sort by anatomic area, type of OMT, or by textbook chapter.
