Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine

Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine 3


About the Program


Residency training at Stony Brook Southampton hospital began under the umbrella of "The Residency Program in Social Medicine," with the belief that health is not the absence of disease, but a state of spiritual, physical, social, economic, and psychological well-being. We believe healthcare is a matter of social justice. We are dedicated to the full application of the biopsychosocial model. We seek to work collaboratively with patients and their families, colleagues and communities to provide excellent patient-centered care. We support a context that fosters health by providing culturally-sensitive and respectful care.

We have continued a long tradition of Osteopathic training of our residents as well as Osteopathic medical students from a variety of schools as we continue to grow during this transition.

The Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine program has ACGME Initial Accreditation as the ONMM 3 (former NMM+1) program since July 2018. The objective of this residency is to provide a comprehensive and longitudinal experience that will afford residents exposure to the various required disciplines in inpatient & outpatient settings, strong didactics, 100% NMM board certified faculty (4) with emphasis on hands over hands training. Training will also include varied approaches to patient care including injections, functional medicine, integrative medicine, acupuncture.
