A multi-modal approach to teaching will be utilized to determine if this is a means to improve learning as well as the retention of knowledge gained during the third clinical year of undergraduate osteopathic education. The study will utilize self-directed learning, small group discussion and teaching, a modified flipped classroom, large group teaching, peer teaching, demonstration, and the use and application of evidence based medicine in the context of osteopathic manipulative medicine. If this integrated approach does indeed improve the knowledge, skills, and retention of knowledge and skillset in osteopathic medical students, this could provide a model for "best practices" in teaching osteopathic manipulative medicine during the undergraduate clinical years.
