Osteopathic Recognition

Letter from the Program Director

Charmaine ChanThank you for your interest in Osteopathic Recognition! Nazareth Hospital is very proud of the fact that we obtained Osteopathic Recognition for both our Internal Medicine Residency and Transitional Year Residency. We are committed to educating our osteopathic and any allopathic medical residents who would like to augment their training in Osteopathic Principles and Practices.

We have set up a curriculum that encourages residents to use Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) in the hospital, as well as in the outpatient setting. We partner with our sister institution, Mercy Catholic Medical Center (MCMC), to conduct a monthly Osteopathic Case Conference where you can learn treatments and for different commonly seen issues. We also have an affiliation with the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), with whom we plan on initiating some research projects on OMM.

We look forward to having you join us in the program!


Charmaine Chan, DO
