Our Plus One NMM residents collaborate with our FM/NMM residents in clinic, didactics, and academic training. We are looking for residents who plan to teach, do research, and actively advance their skills. Our Plus One residents teach and collaborate with students, interns and residents in other training programs, and practicing physicians. Click here to learn more about our residents.
Our core teaching faculty includes three NMM board certified physicians and is widely varied. We are all dedicated to finding the health in our patients, to teaching, and to lifelong learning. All of our faculty use multiple treatment styles. We can familiarize you with most treatment styles, including all of the commonly used techniques, as well as visceral, Fulford percussion, Still method, Fascial Distortion Model, and osteopathic cranial manipulative medicine.

Our non-OMM rotations are precepted by outstanding faculty who are enthusiastic and dedicated to teaching.
The general medical staff in our hospital is mixed MD and DO, with a good acceptance of osteopathic philosophy and treatment from both. Our specialists are knowledgeable, helpful, and dedicated to educating trainees.
Our patient base is reliable in follow-up and represents a wide cross section of the population, allowing good continuity of care. The opportunities for treating (under NMM faculty supervision) pediatric patients (including newborns), pregnant patients, seniors, and surgical/medical/ICU patients are sufficient to meet or exceed residency standards. The outpatient continuity clinic has large treatment rooms with full length power tables for each resident on the schedule that day, two Fulford percussors, and anatomical models for teaching.
Our hospital consult service is steady but light. On the longitudinal inpatient OMM rotation, hospital consults are seen by the residents with faculty supervision. Patients are seen Monday through Friday. The longitudinal hospital NMM rotation permits the scheduling of one additional rotation during the resident's training program. The NMM residents teach residents in other training programs, with faculty support during weekly NMM inpatient teaching rounds with Internal Medicine.
Our program includes an NMM inpatient combined OB/GYN and pediatric rotation that is scheduled as an out-rotation precepted by ONMM-certified faculty in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
