UNECOM 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. The primary connection to these programs is through the North East Osteopathic Medical Education Network (NEOMEN), which is UNECOM’s affiliated OPTI.
In a time of transition within Graduate Medical Education, the role of the OPTI will change and grow. The commitment of these hospital programs to the students and residents of UNECOM is paramount and lasting. Details of these affiliations can be found in the NEOMEN tab .
UNECOM itself offers a Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Plus-One and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Residency that is regarded to be among the premier programs in the nation.
Graduate Training Program
The Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Plus-One (NMM-OMM) program is a one year AOA certified program which trainees may enter after completing an AOA approved residency. This program exposes the resident to a variety of inpatient and outpatient consultative venues. Teaching responsibilities in the Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine are a vital aspect of the NMM/OMM resident's training. Residents successfully completing this program are eligible to sit for the specialty boards in NMM-OMM through The American Osteopathic Board of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (AOBNMM).
COM Residency programs are affiliated with Southern Maine Health Care and collaborate with programs at Maine Medical Center.
