Explore the Best and Latest in Osteopathic Family Medicine

Between hectic schedules, ever-changing regulations, new research and a global pandemic, it’s time to stop, breathe and hit the refresh button. Explore new perspectives on tried-and-true techniques, reboot your OMT skills and get a renewed sense of what’s going on in osteopathic family medicine at the 2021 ACOFP Intensive Osteopathic Update, taking place virtually July 23–25. 

In addition to general programming, IOU will feature programming across the following tracks:

Consult Central (Consultative Track)
We know that family physicians provide comprehensive care to patients at a level similar to specialists, and—sometimes—to provide the highest level of care, we partner with them. Join us for specialist-level lectures, highlighting diagnostics and therapeutics of commonly seen office medical issues, and better prepare patients you send to a specialist.

DEI Track
These lectures are crucial for today’s physicians to ensure we are implementing the best solutions to help all of our patients. Stay current with issues in diversity, equality and inclusion as it pertains to modern-day medicine and gain a greater understanding of what people with different social situations and challenges they are living with.

Wellness Track
Stay true to the holistic whole patient approach to medicine, enhance the health of your patients and increase their satisfaction with their health care and their life. This track was developed to help physicians assist their patients with crucial lifestyle interventions that can enhance their lives and decrease disease burden. Additionally, these interventions can enhance the wellness and job satisfaction of physicians if they engage in the healthy activities. 

Osteopathic and Integrative Medicine Track
Refresh your knowledge of OMT techniques and strengthen your ability to help your patients with OMT for various musculoskeletal and systemic medical conditions. Focusing on commonly seen subjects, this track was developed to maintain the training of OMT to physicians to help their patients. Join us for lectures explaining the application of integrative medicine modalities that patients may be using or are interested in so we can discuss these interventions more intelligently with our patients.
