OVERALL PROGRAM EVALUATION

 

Gap Analysis:

The conference serves as a pivotal platform for osteopathic physicians to explore the intersection of healthcare delivery focusing on whole-body healing.  The conference highlights advancements in the field, emphasizing the interconnectedness of mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.  “Mind, Body, Spirit” will ensure the attendees gain a comprehensive understanding of the evolving medical landscape and are better equipped to navigate the challenges within the realm of healthcare. 

Learning Objectives:

After physicians depart from this program, they will have a better appreciation for the synergistic impact of utilizing an osteopathic approach to implementing holistic care strategies.  Physicians will depart the conference with a better understanding of osteopathic manipulative medicine, emerging technologies and treatments, and competencies to address the diverse needs of patients through a comprehensive and integrated approach to healing.
