Osteopathic Focused Track

The Family Medicine Residency Program at Casper has maintained continuous Osteopathic Recognition through the ACGME since 2016.

This recognition has culminated in the creation of the Osteopathic Focused Track.  This track is an integrated part of the Family Medicine experience for residents who have acquired Osteopathic training during the medical school experience. The track is designed to train physicians to seamlessly incorporate osteopathic principles, philosophy and treatment into the daily practice of Family Medicine. All graduates of Osteopathic Medical Schools will participate in the Osteopathic Focused Track.

Residents who are a part of the Osteopathic Focused Track will:

  1. Integrate Osteopathic Principles/Philosophy into the daily practice of family medicine.
  2. Assess each patient in the outpatient setting to determine if they are candidates for treatment with Osteopathic Manipulation and if so provide appropriate treatment.

  3. Assess and provide Osteopathic Manipulation to appropriate patients in the hospital setting.

  4. Assess and provide osteopathic treatment to appropriate patients in long term care facilities.

  5. Present at least one article with an Osteopathic focus during journal club.

  6. Incorporate discussion of Osteopathic philosophy, principles or techniques into any presentations where such discussion would be appropriately integrated.

Any graduates of Allopathic medical institutions are eligible if they have completed the required number of hours of training in Osteopathic medicine before entering residency.  If you are a graduate of an Allopathic medical institution and are interested in the Osteopathic Focused Track please contact lgable@uwyo.edu for further information.
