Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine

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 for associated residencies. Didactic lectures, simulation, faculty development and research mentorship are provided to facilitate education of 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.
