Sheneman Timothy 2Still OPTI is thrilled to congratulate Dr. Timothy Sheneman and Northeast Regional Medical Center (NRMC) of Kirksville, Missouri, for distinction in graduate medical education. Last month, Dr. Sheneman completed his training at NRMC to become the nation’s first graduatefrom an integrated Internal Medicine / Neuromosculoskeletal Medicine (IM/NMM) residency program.

Dr. Sheneman graduated from A.T. Still University – Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2011 and began his training at NRMC as an Internal Medicine resident. On May 2, 2012, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) approved NRMC’s new IM/NMM residency, the first in the nation and only program of its kind to date. Dr. Sheneman transferred to the integrated program July 1, 2012.

The IM/NMM residency is a four-year program, after which a resident will have completed all requirements for both IM and NMM disciplines as defined in the AOA Basic Standards for Residency Training in Internal Medicine and in the Basic Standards for “Plus One” Residency Training in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. The integrated program combines both disciplines as an overlapping experience, including at least four months of NMM rotations throughout the final three years of training.

Congratulations to Dr. Sheneman on this distinction and to Northeast Regional Medical Center for being on the forefront of excellence in osteopathic graduate medical education.
