OCOM 6000 - Osteopathic Clinical Anatomy Orientation


This orientation allows all entering OU-HCOM students, regardless of their curricular track, to begin their training together, immersed for roughly four weeks in the clinically-oriented study of human gross anatomy, with an integrated introduction to osteopathic manipulative medicine and evidence-based medicine. At the core of the course are laboratory activities. Students will participate in four, three-hour gross anatomy labs each week. These activities involve dissection of human cadavers, imaging studies and discussion of clinical anatomy in an interactive laboratory setting. The structure of the human body is presented in a clinically relevant manner, providing correlations of normal anatomy to common disease states. The ultimate goal is to enhance clinical reasoning in the context of human gross anatomy. One to two, one hour anatomy/palpation labs will occur each week to correlate with the anatomy dissections and landmark identification. Wednesdays are spent in the osteopathic manipulative medicine lab with an introduction to relevant osteopathic manipulative diagnostic skills. A few key lectures will provide background for laboratory studies and provide an introduction to evidence-based medicine.
