Continuing Medical Education

UNE COM’s commitment to the continuation of medical education extends beyond the graduation of its physicians. Both on campus and at affiliates throughout the Northeast and into the Mid-Atlantic, UNE COM partners with or sponsors residency programs that highlight our passion for osteopathic medicine and our dedication to training osteopathic physicians who serve the world.

As early as 1995, UNE COM has been at the forefront of Osteopathic Graduate Medical Education. The educational consortium that turned this drive into concrete residencies is the Northeast Osteopathic Medical Education Network (NEOMEN). UNE COM continues to support and promote residency growth through this consortium as well as provide needed osteopathic and graduate medical education resources to our affiliated residents. UNE COM is associated with more than 15 teaching hospitals across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic that offer more than 40 residency programs across a range of specialties.

Medical Acupuncture Training for Physicians

Acupuncture can be an alternative to opioids in some cases of pain management. AcuMed is the premier provider of education in Integrated Structural Acupuncture. This acupuncture system uses a point verification method, allowing the practitioner to verify the efficacy of their point selection, ensuring optimal diagnosis and treatment. Treatment points are verified to demonstrate their immediate effect on patient symptoms. In this way, both the practitioner and patient actively participate in the healing process. This system is effective for musculoskeletal, neurological, and internal medical conditions. The system also integrates modalities, such as manual therapies, nutrition and lifestyle coaching to formulate the most comprehensive treatment and best patient results.

The course is directed by Dr. Joseph Audette, a recognized world expert in the use of acupuncture point verification methods and acupuncture needling techniques for the treatment of acute and chronic pain. The course provides over 300 CME hours of training in medical acupuncture.
