Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine 3 Residency

We have offered an Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine 3 (ONMM3) Residency (formerly the NMM/OMM Plus One Residency) since 2001. This is a post residency year that prepares the resident for board certification in ONMM. We received our ACGME Pre-Accreditation August 2018 and our Initial Accreditation in July 2019.

We continue to refine the program and expand the curriculum to prepare our graduates to be well-educated and skilled representatives of the osteopathic profession. Our graduates have an excellent pass rate on the American Osteopathic Board of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine certification exams and go on to practice in their primary board certification, as well as specialty ONMM and teaching faculty careers. ONMM3 residents are members of NL EMMC medical staff and assist in teaching medical students and family medicine residents in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
 

The service of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine has been embraced by the Greater Bangor community which exposes trainees to a comprehensive and diverse patient population with a multitude of diagnosis common to neuromusculoskeletal medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine.  Our outpatient clinic is well established and supported by referrals from a variety of specialists in our local community. Our continuity clinic is well equipped with 12 patient rooms dedicated to ONMM Consults. We use Cerner as our ambulatory and inpatient electronic medical records system. Each resident has their own clinic laptop that can be used at the clinic as well as desktops and printers in every exam room.

The ONMM3 residents have their own office that has desks for 6 residents.
