On behalf of NYCOMEC, I am pleased to announce that the American Osteopathic Association has approved two new NYCOM sponsored programs at Southampton Hospital in Southampton, New York.
Under the educational leadership of Shawn Cannon, D.O., the hospital already has several relatively new programs: Traditional Rotating Internship, Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine. These programs have become very competitive in a short period of time.
The first new program is the Integrated Family Practice and Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine. This combined program allows the resident to be simultaneously trained in both Family Practice and NMM. This program leads to dual board eligibility and dual certification. Daniel Van Arsdale, D.O. serves as the program director.
The second new program is the NMM +1. This residency allows a graduate of any osteopathic residency to train in NMM and become board eligible in only one additional year. Many DO’s, particularly those in primary care, after completing their initial residency wish they had additional training and expertise in NMM. This program, under Stephen Braun D.O.’s directorship, makes this possible in a relatively short time.
For more information about these programs, please contact NYCOMEC or the Hospital’s Medical Education Office directly at 631-726-0409.
