Professional Practice Gap
As part of osteopathic medical training both the clinical preceptors (faculty) and physicians-in-training need to be trained on the application of osteopathic principles in clinical practice. The osteopathic approach to low back pain in the pregnant patient will be presented using both hands-on and didactic presentations focuses on performing physical neurologic, and structural examinations incorporating analysis of laboratory and radiology results, diagnostic testing, and physical examination, along with treatment of somatic dysfunction.

Educational Need
Osteopathically focused residency programs require both the faculty and residents to received ongoing training on the integration of the uniquely osteopathic knowledge, skills, and behaviors of osteopathic principles and practice. The current topic identified by a program director at one of the participating residency program sites to address a knowledge and skill deficit. ACGME Osteopathic Recognition requires education of residency faculty, incoming residents (MD and DO), medical students, and residents in osteopathic principles and practice.

Educational presentations of this approach are needed to facilitate mastery of the osteopathic principles and practice competencies outlined in the osteopathic recognition residency requirements for faculty and residents.

Desired Outcomes
This course is designed to improve knowledge and competence in clinical practice management of low back pain in the pregnant patient by focusing on performing physical, neurologic, and structural examinations incorporating analysis of laboratory and radiology results, diagnostic testing, and physical examination along with treatment of somatic dysfunction related to low back pain in the pregnant patient.
