Year 2
Years 3 & 4
What Is the Curriculum

Curriculum Overview
Osteopathic Medical Knowledge
Curriculum Highlights
Interactive Classroom
Delivered with combination of large group lectures, small group learning and experiential learning
Basic Science courses integrated with clinical learning
Frequent assessment and feedback
Year 1
Two Longitudinal Courses
Osteopathic Clinical Skills
The aim of Osteopathic Clinical Skills is to transform learners into student physicians who demonstrate superior clinical skills and medical professionalism, and embody empathetic, patient centered medical care in preparation for clinical clerkship training.
The Osteopathic Clinical Skills course provides the students with a solid knowledge of clinical anatomy as the basis for the competent and safe performance of physical examination and osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM).
Learners are instructed in the art and skill of medical history taking as well as provided an understanding of structure and function to formulate a clinical temporal profile leading to the differential diagnosis. In addition, learners will gain a foundation of osteopathic knowledge and skills that will be built upon longitudinally throughout the learner’s medical education and practice.
Typical Weekly Class Schedule
Osteopathic Medical Knowledge is a multidisciplinary course designed to introduce medical science knowledge that undergirds the practice of osteopathic medicine.

The Osteopathic Medical Course biological disciplines such as physiology, microbiology and biochemistry and more clinical disciplines such as pathology and evidence-based medicine.

The overall aim is to allow the first year osteopathic medical student to integrate and apply this knowledge in the solution of clinical problems. Additionally, the student will develop cognitive skills and attitudes that support continual acquisition of medical knowledge
Typical Weekly Class Schedule
Osteopathic Systems A & B
Osteopathic Medical Knowledge A & B
Osteopathic Clinical Skills I
Two Longitudinal Courses
Osteopathic Systems A & B
Osteopathic Clinical Skills II
The Osteopathic Systems A course is semester long course which integrates the most common
and/or important patient presentations related to the neuropsychiatric, musculoskeletal, hematological, and gastrointestinal body systems with foundational underlying biomedical scientific principles.

The Osteopathic Systems B course is semester long course which integrates the most common and/or important patient presentations related to the respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, reproductive and endocrine body systems with foundational underlying biomedical scientific principles.

Both courses use a combination of interactive, didactic presentations, case study discussions, laboratory sessions, panel discussions, and “grand rounds” conferences. The structured learning activities
reinforce and expand the student’s understanding of relevant biomedical and clinical elements
of health care explored in the first year UNECOM courses. The structure-function relationship and the body's inherent ability to self-regulate, heal, and maintain health are prominent themes
in the course content.
Osteopathic Clinical Skills II
The Osteopathic Clinical Skills course continues in the second year of studies. The course is designed to reinforce and expand the student’s knowledge and osteopathic clinical skills to ensure safe and competent practice during core clinical training rotations in Years 3-4.

Osteopathic Clinical Skills II introduces the student to more advanced methods of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment and extends the integration of key concepts into the clinical practice of primary care. Learning activities parallel topics and areas of focus of the Osteopathic Systems series of courses and include standardized patient experiences, osteopathic manual medicine skills sessions, clinical skills assessment, and differential diagnosis.
