Gap Analysis: The Osteopathic Embrace originates from the deep camaraderie that permeates the osteopathic profession. We embrace our roots in osteopathic manipulation treatment while also embracing the ever-changing medical landscape. This conference will embrace these topics and allow the osteopathic physicians of Oklahoma to continue providing excellent medical care for their patients.

Learning Objectives: After physicians depart from this program, they will better understand the emerging technologies in medicine and gain knowledge, including approaches to osteopathic manual medicine for the shoulder, how to appropriately prescribe controlled substances, and other skills that will build on and improve their practice of medicine.
