Osteopathic Recognition


    Scope of OPP and OMM in Dermatology

    • In this training institution, our identity as an osteopathic focused program in Dermatology is based on the philosophy that treating patients with skin disease involves the treatment of the entire person, not just the physical ailments of their skin.
    • This holistic philosophy includes recognizing the body's innate ability for self-healing and the complex role of the musculoskeletal system in the disease process.
    • As experts in the cutaneous manifestations of systemic disease, this philosophy is thoroughly integrated in the training process of the Dermatology resident.
    • Prior understanding of these principles and a basic understanding of treatment modalities through the musculoskeletal system (OMT) is essential prior to beginning specific training in the field of Dermatology.
