The Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine (AZCOM) at Midwestern University is pleased to announce the creation of new training opportunities for osteopathic medicine graduates at the Midwestern University Multispecialty Clinic, located at 19389 North 59th Avenue in Glendale.

As healthcare provider shortages loom over the State of Arizona, AZCOM, the state's largest medical school, has worked diligently to establish a series of in-state postgraduate osteopathic residencies to train new doctors through Midwestern's Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institute (OPTI) program, both in urban and rural settings. Midwestern University's local residency programs and well-regarded graduates translate to a significant boon for Arizona healthcare.

Two Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship slots are now available for postgraduate candidates who meet specific American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO) requirements. The first two Fellowships will begin on July 1st, 2012, under the leadership of noted lecturer, author, and researcher William H. Devine, D.O., Program Director, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.

The Fellowships are the latest in-state postgraduate opportunities sponsored by AZCOM's OPTI program, joining existing programs at Kingman Regional Medical Center, Sierra Vista Regional Health Center, and Verde Valley Medical Center.

The Midwestern University Multispecialty Clinic offers quality comprehensive healthcare in five specialty areas, including Clinical Psychology, Family Medicine, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, Pharmacy Services, and the Foot and Ankle Clinic. It is one of three state-of-the-art healthcare facilities on Midwestern's Glendale Campus, joining the Midwestern University Dental Institute and Midwestern University Eye Institute.
