January 16, 2009 - Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) initiated its Continuing Medical Education (CME) program in February 2008 with its first CME course, titled Manual Medicine and Therapy I. The Series continues on February 21-22, 2009, with Manual Medicine and Therapy II, which will focus on techniques for the sacrum, pelvis and extremities.

The program is approved for 13.5 hours of AOA Category 1-A CME credit and 1.36 CEUs (13.6 contact hours) from the Tennessee Physical Therapy Association.

Foundational and advanced programs will continue over the next year with schedules that meet the busy practitioner’s needs. Presenters in the Osteopathic Principles and Practice Series are LMU-DCOM faculty members Dr. Kimberly D'Eramo and Dr. Michael Wieting.
