Osteopathic Education

The  Alaska Family Medicine Residency is a dually accredited program (ACGME and the AOA) and is pending Osteopathic Recognition through ACGME. Osteopathic residents have the opportunity to use and to further develop their OMT skills in all patient care settings. Our osteopathic residents are expected to integrate osteopathic concepts and OMT skills into the medical care and management of their own panel of patients at the Providence Family Medicine Center. The center also hosts an OMT clinic twice a month where appropriately referred patients can receive OMT, and our osteopathic faculty and residents can share, compare, and develop their OMT skills.
