The Department of Postdoctoral Education works to further the continuum of osteopathic medical education between the predoctoral and postdoctoral years by working with the Midwestern University Osteopathic Postdoctoral Institute (MWU/OPTI). Activities include curriculum development, research activities and OMM integration. Didactic lectures, simulation, faculty development and research mentorship are provided to residents and students at MWU/OPTI postdoctoral education sites by AZCOM faculty working with MWU/OPTI on-site faculty.
Curriculum focusing on research training, OMM/OPP and Clinical Allergy and Immunology have been developed and presented at residency sites, in-person and through videoconferencing by AZCOM and MWU/OPTI faculty. Basic Science and clinical specialty lectures in topics such as psychiatry and rheumatology are presented at our residency sites.
